Kingston Forest & Nature School

Our vision is for children of all ages, genders, socio-economic backgrounds and ability levels to play and learn in local forests, creeks, fields, marshlands, mountains, and shorelines with a skilled and empowered educator who understands the power of play and child-directed learning and how this can contribute to a more sustainable world.

Kingston Forest & Nature School (KFNS) is a brand-new Forest and Nature School (FNS) program located in Kingston, Ontario. Beginning in Fall 2019, KFNS will offer weekly pre-registered & drop-in programming to the wider Kingston community, at our home base on Highway 38 and in a few select natural areas around the city.

The programming offered by KFNS will be geared towards preschool & school-aged children and their parents/caregivers/teachers. Free play, nature exploration, story time, snack time, mess-making, crafting, and plenty of age-appropriate risk-taking and confidence-building!

For more details on available programming, please see Our Programs.
