Kids looking for creatures in the grass
Welcome to the Nature Kindergarten blog. We will use this site to make announcements about the progress of the Nature Kindergarten initiative here at School District #62.
Take a look at our Proposal For A Nature Kindergarten.

I just heard about this and I think it is such a wonderful idea. I don’t see any minutes or notes from your meetings. Will these be posted? I’m wondering when you are proposing to start this program and what schools will be involved. Also, are the meetings open to the public?
I’d like to attend the next meeting to find out more as well and how to get involved.
This is very exciting.
Thank you for your interest in the Nature Kindergarten pilot. We are hoping to begin a pilot class in September 2012. A school has not been identified at this time. You are welcome to attend a meeting if you are interested in becoming directly involved in the planning stages of this project. If you prefer to receive updates about where we are at, then viewing this blog from time to time would be most helpful.
Thanks for the information Frances. I look forward to updates
Hi thought you might like to look at our Kindergarten in New Zealand. We have been operating our Nature Discovery Programme since 2009
Thanks for connecting with us. I look forward to looking at the link and learning more about your program.
