Newts is our half-day outdoor learning program running Tuesday and/or Thursday mornings for children 2.5 – 4 years of age.

Newts is a child-led, inquiry-based program that will focus on developing social, physical, cognitive, creative, and emotional well-being while fostering a connection with the natural world around them.

We offer small class sizes (1:6 ratio) which provides educators with the opportunity to connect with and build upon children’s learning in our unstructured-play environment.

This is a drop-off program, no caregiver participation.

A day as a Nature Newt may look as follows:

  • 9:00 am – Arrival and Nature Stations
  • 9:30 am – Outdoor Exploration
  • 10:30 am – Snack
  • 10:45 am – Circle
  • 11:00 am – Nature Stations
  • 11:30 am – Pick-Up

Nature Newts program will run out of our new Cave Springs location in Beamsville, ON.
