Nature Kindergarten is a full-day program of choice based at Scout Island Nature Centre in Williams Lake.  Students spend significant parts of each day, throughout the year, outdoors doing the following:

  • Discovering trails, forested areas and aquatic environments.
  • Exploring local ways of learning and knowing by connecting with elders and experts in the community.
  • Engaging in purposeful exploration and play outdoors and indoors.
  • Building resilience and confidence through developmentally appropriate activities involving some risk taking e.g. tree climbing, tool use, stick play.
  • Building literacy & numeracy skills through nature based activities.
  • Learning the importance of caring and respect for nature by engaging with it.
