Programs for Ages 5-12

"Let nature be your teacher."
William Wordsworth

Would your child like to play and learn outdoors? Fresh Air Learning has three options for elementary school-aged children.


We have play-based forest programs for children ages 5-6 in North Vancouver or Vancouver or our 6-8-year-old program in North Vancouver. These programs are based on child-led outdoor play. You can find out more about our play-based programs here.

Our North Vancouver Nature School program provides elementary school-aged children ages 5 to 12 with a two day per week nature-based learning opportunity in forest and farm settings. This program is inspired by forest school, the 8 shields model of learning, permaculture design, and tinkering school. We've partnered with the Island Discovery Learning Community to offer a program for school-aged children who enroll as Distributed Learners. Learn more about this program here.

Our new Democratic Nature School program in Vancouver is a play-based, child-led program for children ages 5 to 12. This one-day program supported by Island Discovery Learning Community takes place in Vancouver's parks. Children must be enrolled as Distributed Learners. Learn more here.
