Our primary goal at Nature School and Education Centre is to bring children into nature and to facilitate an environment that is child-led and supportive of all learners.  We want our programs to be accessible to anyone who wants to attend – we do this through community partnerships and raising funds for scholarships and financial support.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to Nature School – we appreciate your support more than we can express!

Below we have our community partners:

Brock University

Nature School must be reflective and critical in their own practice, and ready to evolve and adapt when indicated – striving always for Best Practice. We are excited to be part of this study with Brock University – allowing us to open the program up to students in need,  and really examine the child’s well being while participating in a nature-based, child lead program.
