Nature Kindergarten Filling Up Fast

May 28, 2018 - Parkland School Division (PSD) Early Childhood Services has developed a partnership with Muir Lake School and Scouts Canada Camp (at Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area) to create an optional Kindergarten program that will get children active and in touch with nature while essentially extending a child's kindergarten experience from half-time to full-time in the process.

The program responds to identified early childhood indicators that demonstrate a need for additional social and physical development programming within our division. This pilot entering its third year also seeks to explore the impact on early learning using the natural environment as a place where curiosity, play, problem-solving and calculated risk-taking can take place in a safe way.
