Frequently Asked Questions

Here is what we find is some of our frequently asked questions. If your answer isn’t here feel free to reach out to admin@childnature.ca

 

What does a typical day look like?

A Day in the Life (above) from the previous page offers a good idea of our daily rhythm. Each day time is spent in wide, ranging play and in smaller, quieter reflection and story-telling. Children are involved in deciding how to stay safe and how the day will unfold. Educators strive to make space for everyone to do what they need to and want to, as well as bring the right tools along, ask the right questions, and to step back when we are not needed. We never know at the beginning of the day exactly how it will unfold, except that there will be plenty of dirt, rocks, sticks, play, and learning.

 

 

What do you do on rainy days?

We often repeat the adage “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.” On rainy days we follow a very similar rhythm to sunny days, with the addition od wearing our waterproof layers. Many children believe the forest is much more fun when it is filled with puddles. That’s when it is easier to find frogs and salamanders, too!

 

 

What do you do in the winter?

As mentioned regarding rainy days, we dress for the cold in the winter, and we follow a very similar rhythm to other seasons. We do have a wood-heated cabin on site, though, and each day after exploring and playing in the cold and snow, we cozy up inside to eat, get warm, create, and tell to stories.
