Enrichment Days

Our Enrichment program runs bi-weekly throughout the school year and are open to children (ages 8 and up) interested having fun outdoors and learning through Art & Nature Experiences.

Many of our days are spent in the woods, where students are given a chance to develop and deepen their connection with the natural world through projects such as building and cooking over a fire, wood carving, and learning to use wild edible and medicinal plants. We also do handcrafts, play plenty of games, and go on field trips.

Note:  If your child is younger than 8, there are opportunities to join weekly on Thursdays with our Early Elementary Program.  Contact us for details.

HANDS ON FUN

Activities may include candle dipping, working with wool work, making lanterns, singing, planting, nature walks, exploring, bread baking, stories, building, creating instruments, & watercolour painting…to name a few!

This year our Enrichment program will introduce the children to Fairlight Farm where they will have the unique opportunity to be on an off-grid farm with many small animals and beautiful diversity of woods and upper meadows.

TO REGISTER

For the 2021-2022 school year, we are offering two semesters.  You can sign up for one or both.

Please NOTE: This year’s Enrichment  program is being changed to Enrichment SATURDAYS (from the original “Enrichment Friday”) for the fall term as a trial.
The first session will be Saturday Sept 18, and continuing every other Saturday until the final session of the term Dec. 11.

Please fill out the registration form and send to Jenna Ross either by email admin@knowlesvillenature.ca or by mail c/o 111 Simms Road, Knowlesville, NB, E7L4P7.

WHAT TO BRING

Each day runs like a full school day, so please pack a healthy lunch.  Also, children will need to be dressed for all types of weather and lively outside play as the majority of the day is spent outside. Please be sure to pack extra clothing on wet days and layers, hats, mitts, etc. on colder days.

COST

Cost is $250*/child/term or $450/child for the full year.  Each term has 8-10 full day classes.  This is not a drop-in program since projects will build upon previous sessions.  Full payment schedule details on the enrichment-registration-form.

*A Sibling discount of 20% off will be applied automatically to multiple children in the same family.

Look forward to seeing you!
