The following message is from Assistant Superintendent, Roberta Kubik:
After a successful pilot of Nature Kindergarten at Sangster Elementary, the Board of Education at School District 62 is continuing its support of the program into the 2014/2015 school year.
Using the forests and lands of neighbouring Royal Roads University, the students spend the mornings outside, rain or shine, learning the Kindergarten curriculum in the forest and among wildlife.
The District will be exploring opening one or two new Nature Kindergarten classes in September 2015. The District is also interested in exploring ways to expand the learnings of Nature Kindergarten to other grade levels.
