At Out and About Adventures, children are at the center of our program development; we practice an emergent, experiential, inquiry-based, play and place-based curriculum. The activities from week to week depend on the interests of the current group and are intended to further deepen their knowledge/experience with different topics, practices, materials or ideas. Challenging social interactions and behavior will be guided (when necessary) patiently, through modelling and empathetic reasoning/communication. Respect for the natural world, communication, emotional/social learning and community building are a big part of our program. Our programs are inclusive, and led by facilitators who are motivated to provide a flexible curriculum to meet the needs of each unique group as a whole.
We play in all kinds of weather. Children will be required to dress to be comfortable outdoors in the rain/cold and mud/muck for the duration of the program and to bring a small backpack with a nut-free snack, water and mug for tea. A list of recommended clothing is available on our resource page.
Currently, we are offering our program at Trout Lake in Vancouver!
