WHAT IS NATURE KINDERGARTEN?
Scout Island Nature Kindergarten is a full-day program of choice which takes place at Scout Island Nature Centre. Children who are adaptable, flexible, enthusiastic, able to follow directions well, cooperative, have no problem getting dirty and love to be outdoors in all kinds of weather will be best suited for this rigorous program.
WHO CAN TAKE PART IN THIS PROGRAM?
Any child who resides within School District #27 boundaries and whose 5th birthday falls between January 1 and December 31 of the year they will start kindergarten can participate in this program, if space is available. Since the Nature Kindergarten is affiliated with Marie Sharpe Elementary, families outside the Marie Sharpe catchment area will need to complete a School of Choice application. To find out if your child will be suited to this program, you would need to attend an information meeting usually held in January of each year.
