We Take Kids into Nature!

Providing opportunities for children to learn through play, while exploring the great outdoors, is at the heart of what we do here at Toronto Forest School.

Climbing trees, digging in the dirt, exploring creek beds, building forts, discovering creature friends, playing in the mud, creating friendships, fostering a love of the natural world, learning about native plant and animal species and the list goes on. These are just some of the experiences we strive to provide and facilitate for children at Toronto Forest School.

Our Programs

Eco-Explorers Summer Camp

Nature Play for 5-6 year olds

 

Toronto Forest School is proud to offer Eco-Explorers, a forest school initiative

for children ages 5 and 6 years old. Spend the day adventuring the Don Valley with us! Discover the joy of learning through outdoor play and engagement! 


In nature play, children have the freedom to explore, take risks and learn about the natural world through intrinsically motivated play. Competent and aware practitioners are there to guide experiences every step of the way.

Climbing trees, digging in the dirt, exploring creek beds, building forts, nature crafting,  working with wood, discovering nature mysteries, playing in the mud, fostering a love of the natural world, learning about native plant and animal species are just SOME of the things we get up to!

Eco-explorers will run July 22-26th, from 9:30am to 3pm.

We will be running out of Chorley Park and Mud Creek. We also have an indoor location to eat lunch/ have a bathroom break and do some nature crafts and yoga before heading out again!

 

*Spaces for this program are limited as we really value a low child to practitioner ratio. Not only does this ensure overall safety and supervision for the entire group, it allows adults to really delve into play experiences with children in a way that's not possible with large groups.

Cost per single day: $70

or $325 for the week

From Little Acorns, Mighty Oaks Grow

The launch of Eco-Explorers is extremely exciting and just the start of what Toronto Forest School has to offer.

As we continue to grow our relationship with the City of Toronto, negotiating how to access the land in safe and sustainable ways, Toronto Forest School will surely expand our program offerings.

 

It is our intention to run Forest School programs, Monday to Friday, throughout the typical school year (including PA days and March-break).

 

We believe that the City of Toronto, recognizing the importance of nature-play and children's connection to the earth, will have a desire to accommodate and make room for this type of programming on municipal land.
