Held at both Sangster and Saseenos elementary schools, the Nature Kindergarten program in SD62 was one of the first of its kind in Canada when it was piloted in September 2012. Its popularity and success have turned the program into a yearly option for parents.
Students spend every morning outside, rain or shine, in natural settings (primarily on the property of Royal Roads University – Sangster students; T’Sou-ke Nation lands – Saseenos students). Students then return to school for their lunch and remain in the classroom during the rest of the afternoon for indoor learning.
Parents must attend one of the information sessions listed below prior to registering their child for Nature Kindergarten at either Sangster or Saseenos elementary school.
