Imagine a classroom without walls, where the forest is your child’s playground. Trees, animals, and birds are not just characters of books, but our friends and teachers too.

Scugog Nature School provides outdoor, inquiry-based learning to children ages 1 to 13. Through spontaneous outdoor play, children expand their understanding of the Earth while applying concepts from science, art, math, language, and physical education. Children build confidence and self-esteem as they explore and observe nature. Learning outcomes are based on real-time explorations and experiences rather than predetermined concepts.
