Update on Nature Kindergarten Project

The concept of a Nature Kindergarten in the Sooke School District has been presented to various groups including the Board of Trustees, senior management, elementary principals and vice principals, and interested Kindergarten teachers.  A pilot Nature Kindergarten class is proposed to begin in September 2012.  At this time, our planning group is researching various forest preschool and outdoor school models.  We are planning a few visits to different sites during the month of June and also hoping to consult with some experts in early summer.  Our planning group is also currently focused on securing funding for this pilot project.  Last week, we were notified that we received a $12,500 Rural Innovations Grant from U.B.C.
