Going Green

Our Naturalization Area

“Time in nature is not leisure time; it's an essential investment in our children's health (and also, by the way, in our own).” 

―  Richard Louve  

We appreciate the commitment of our parents to maintain and enhance our outdoor learning place. 

A place for doing

  • which offers opportunities for physical activities, for “doing” all kinds of things, and which recognizes their need to extend themselves, develop new skills, to find challenges and take risks.

A place for thinking   

  • which provides intellectual stimulation, things which they can discover and study and learn about by themselves and with friends, which allows them to explore and discover and understand more about the world they live in.

A place for feeling

  • which presents colour and beauty and interest, which engenders a sense of ownership and pride and belonging, in which they can be “small” without feeling vulnerable, where they can care for the place and people in it and feel cared for themselves.

A place for being

  • which allows them to “be” themselves, which recognizes their individuality, their need to have a private persona in a public place, for privacy, for being alone and with friends, for being quiet in noise, for being a child
