In the World of Wild Craft Play, children learn through purposeful play and immersing themselves in wonder and imagination. Through magical play and fantasy based, real-life scenarios, children develop internal motivation to learn, wonderment and love for the Earth. We believe that when a child is led by their own internal desires, they ask more questions and ignite a love of learning. 
With 20 years of research and development, we now use an approach called Guided Discovery Learning, the Hummingbird Approach and the Art of Mentoring. We ignite wonder and love for the Earth and draw out inner wisdom by allowing children to lead their experience. With child led insights of discovery we offer integrated academic and core competencies.
We teach Earth-conscious practices including outdoor safety protocol, fire building, knife use, cooking, crafting and the use of appropriate tools to accomplish each goal.

Supporting K to Grade 3

We are offering a day of learning in nature, where academic core competencies can be explored through nature exploration along with social emotional learning, physical literacy and overall development. Daily activities include open play, group games, storytelling, wildcrafting and bush crafting skills that can be tailored to learning outcomes and goals. Academic concepts can be as broad or specific as needed, and guided by the wise hand of nature.
