School in Nature

EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS

Our unique School in Nature is designed to guide your children through hands-on and creative outdoor exploration with a focus on academics.  Your children will develop leadership and social/emotional skills that will support them in all other areas including their full time school. They will foster a deeper love for learning and stewardship through inquiry-based outdoor projects. This will teach them to focus, not give up and take pride in their finished work. Watch while they discover and harness unique qualities within themselves while building greater resilience and confidence. Students at our school build mental and physical health by taking part in a safe, rewarding and active learning program that acts as both an outlet and an anchor in their daily schedule.

REGISTRATION FOR SEPTEMBER 2020 NOW OPEN!

THE ELEPHANT THOUGHTS DIFFERENCE

Core Values

Elephant Thoughts is delivering all the best that forest schools have to offer with academics high on the list. All that ET is known and respected for: inclusivity, values of environmental stewardship, cultural diversity and gender equity are at the core of our teachings.

Enhanced Learning

Children focus on numeracy, literacy, the arts and science all through outdoor exploration. School In Nature introduces children to the principals of science in its’ natural environment vs in the lab, encouraging a holistic approach to learning.
