WiSe Earth Forest School

Children will be free to be wild, loud, playful, creative and inventive. 

Children will be supported to be quiet, calm, connected and curious. 

Children will be nurtured to be resilient, resourceful, caring and kind. 

We are delighted to be by their sides for this adventure into learning. 

School Trip in Forest

Year Long Forest school 

Wise Earth Forest School is an outdoor learning adventure. It is a deep dive into nature connection, academic and experiential learning for a exciting and inspiring year of nature school. We have small groups of 10-12 students with teachers and mentors, creating low teacher student ratio of between 1:4 to 1:7. Children of all grades will come together for full group activities, group games, and multi-grade learning experiences also known as Big Buddies.  

Our program is available for four days per week - from 9am-2:30pm. Our learning sites are based in Metchosin, BC where we have 5 acres of forest, a vegetable garden, farm animals and an indoor classroom for inclement weather. 

Children practice literacy, math, social studies and sciences in both an indoor classroom setting and in applied experiential activities on the land. Mindfulness, body awareness, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution and problem solving are core concepts of the program, fostered each day. We offer children the tools to nurture their relationships and understand group dynamics, preparing children for healthy relationships in life. Land and ancestral skills such as plant identification and uses, fire-tending, knife use, shelter building and navigation feature throughout the entire year. 

We have chosen 4 days in which to create a full week of programming to free up one more day for families to spend with their kids, for home learning families to connect and to continue to strive towards balance in a week. 

We endeavour to create an affordable program for families, and very much appreciate parent volunteers and fundraising support. We keep the tuition as affordable as possible. Yearly tuition is $7500. Wise Earth offers a bursary of up to $1500 for families in need. Distributed learning programs can offer $600 per student that can be used towards tuition, which can reduce the fee to as low as $5400.

We accept monthly instalments.

To apply, please send an email to sarah@wiseearthforestschool.com. Come to an Open House to meet us, and see our forest, garden, animals and classroom! 

We will then complete interviews to ensure this is a good fit for your child. If we are all in agreement about the fit, you will be invited to register, and our programs begin the week of Sept 12, 2023 !  Thank you for reading:)
