This seasonally-based program uses sensory awareness activities to introduce young children to nature.
This program introduces very young children to nature in a gentle, enjoyable way through activities, observation and play. Exploring forests and fields will help students develop an interest and appreciation of the natural world.
Students will discover nature using their eyes, ears, nose and sense of touch. They will be shown a variety of nature artifacts that they can examine to study textures, colours, patterns, shapes, and at the same time learn interesting facts about the specific item.
Throughout the year, nature is constantly changing, each season presenting different experiences. This program focuses on the seasonal features present at the time of your visit. If you would like to emphasize a specific topic, please note this when booking the program.
