Precious Seeds Forest Element is modelled on the forest schools of Europe started back in the 1950’s, this outdoor element will bring children to forest locations to hike, build, and play.
One goal of this program is to connect children to nature through play. We believe that an important part of childhood should be about exploring outdoors in an environment that supports child-led learning. Another goal of the program is to foster a connection and respect for the environment around us using indigenous stories and teachings.
We hope you will consider adding this component to your child’s education!
