Wild Child Forest School and Nature Immersion are educational programs of Sierra Club Canada Foundation and have been connecting children, youth, and families to nature since 2010. The mission of our Wild Child programs is to provide child led, play based learning through repeated exposure to nature helping to foster a lasting relationship with the natural world.
Wild Child Nature Immersion is a free program offered to early learning centres and kindergarten classrooms. This program brings fun environmental education and encourages staff and children to get outside, play games and age appropriate activities to learn about their environment and the other critters they share their community with.
Since 2015, we have been able to reach over 1480 children at 45 different early childhood learning centres and afterschool programs in Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia with the Wild Child Nature Immersion Program.
We are expanding the Wild Child movement to early learning centres, after school programs and kindergarten classrooms in Alberta as we strongly believe that all children and youth should have the opportunity to play and learn in natural areas.
