The Learning Centre has a pretty full house this winter session with their Forest School programming, and continues to labour toward finishing two insulated tents to be used as rustic classrooms for the Preschool, Kindergarten & Homeschooler children.
It’s been a calamitous and gratifying group effort, lead by Jay Young, site manager and Centre leader.
Meanwhile: Marlene Power works steadily behind the scenes and around the grounds as Centre Director and community outreach networker.
Educators Sara, Heather & Chad keep the kids busy with learning about the snowy outdoors, educational hikes through the bush, and generally making sure everyone enjoys themselves while also getting hands-on skills for becoming adults!
Kim & Dave work in the kitchen & office doing cooking and support. GO TEAM!
(About the pics: above, the Homeschool Wilderness kids enjoying a fire, below, Bob & Matt doing ongoing construction, maintenance, de-icing and snow removal. Old Man Winter has been doing his best to slow the process but recent milder weather (plus the dedication of Jay, Matt & Bob) has helped to keep moving things along. . . stay tuned for more.)
