Chilliwack – If you are looking for an opportunity for your child to socialize and learn in a healthy and safe manner, then you may be interested in learning more about the recently approved opening of a new Chilliwack River Valley Outdoor Learning Program.
The goal of this program is to develop the skills and healthy mindset for a lifelong passion of learning, and provide an awareness of our environment and all it has to offer. The activities will supplement the BC Curriculum in a nature-inspired classroom (the forest), and will build on and engage your child’s natural curiosity! This “independent” Outdoor Learning Program will be facilitated by 2 BC certified teachers for children that are currently enrolled in kindergarten to grade 5. This program will be fully insured and will follow all COVID-19 and Risk Assessment Protocols and Procedures.
