At Scugog Nature School, learning is…
We recognize the importance of play in a child’s development, and its integral role in their cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being. As said by Albert Einstein, “Play is the highest form of research”.
We focus on inquiry-based learning which builds on children’s natural curiosity about the world in which they live. It places their questions and ideas at the centre of the learning experience.
We provide children ample opportunities to learn by doing, reflecting on the process, encouraging them to take initiative, make decisions, and be accountable for their results.
We build a foundation of knowledge through a focus on local nature, culture, and community are central to the lessons learned at Scugog Nature School.
