Our Foresthood programs are designed to connect children to nature. Our programs are child-led and our curriculum is developed by observing child’s play – when themes emerge we use inquiry-based learning to develop knowledge or solutions. The children are encouraged to interact with nature with all of their senses, to develop socially, to build curiosities about the world around them, to find calm, to be physically active, to be stewards of the land and to be in nature in safe and age-appropriate ways.

Children receive many benefits from spending their formative years outside. Being outdoors provides diverse learning opportunities, … Health benefits arise from an environment that challenges physical ability, including fine and gross motor skills.
MacEachren, 2013
Risky active play is an important part of childhood risk doesn’t mean courting danger like skating on a half-frozen lake or sending a preschooler to the park alone. It means the types of play children see as thrilling and exciting, where the possibility of physical injury may exist, but they can recognize and evaluate challenges according to their own ability.
