It was great to have several new people join us for November’s planning meeting. The energy and enthusiasm to become involved in this project is truly appreciated!
The group reviewed draft versions of two possible registration processes for the Nature Kindergarten. At the November 22nd board meeting, the Board of Trustees determined that school district administration, not the board of trustees, will design the Nature Kindergarten registration process. The registration process should be announced by December 16th.
An update was given on a meeting with someone from CRD’s risk management division who advised on how to develop a risk management plan. A group of interested individuals will meet in early December to identify the specific natural settings where the program will take place, and evaluate potential risks.
A draft of the pedagogical principles was circulated and feedback is requested by Decmber 9th.
There was conversation about developing a logo, name and possible mascot for the Nature Kindergarten. Many agreed that this would be a great project for the broader Sangster School community.
