Upper Canada Child Care

Opening September 2021: White Pines Forest School!


August 6, 2021

Upper Canada Child Care is proud to announce the opening of White Pines Forest School (WPFS) in September 2021. Located at 609 Kettleby Road, just minutes from Hwy 400 and Regional Road 16 (Lloydtown-Aurora) in Kettleby, WPFS will be offering non-licensed recreational programs for children ages 3 to 6 years, run by a certified Forest School Practitioner. 

What is Forest School?
Forest school takes place primarily in a natural environment, and the majority of the program is spent exclusively outdoors. The focus is on child-centered learning, free-play, and self-led activities. Forest School Educators also actively support learning that is driven and inspired by the child’s curiosity and inquiry. Risky play, stewardship, and environmental perspectives play key roles in this program.

Benefits of Forest School include:

  • increased self-esteem and confidence;
  • development of language and communication skills;
  • improved motivation;
  • better concentration and self-regulation;
  • improved physical and social skills; and
  • development of the ability to navigate risk.

Space is limited and group sizes are small to promote safety. Contact whitepines@ucccc.ca for more information or to register. We hope to see you in the forest!
