Outdoor Kindergarten Program

The West Bench Outdoor Learning Program is designed to embed the benefits of being outside with the need to incorporate regular healthy, active learning and social interactions for our early primary students.
Children will be involved in thoughtfully planned learning experiences which promote discovery, play, exploration, environmental stewardship and the Aboriginal ways of learning and knowing.
The program will take place on the rural setting surrounding the West Bench Elementary School, as well as in the classroom, on a daily basis. All students will participate in carefully designed activities that support their intellectual, emotional, social, artistic, aesthetic and physical development, just as in our regular Kindergarten classrooms.
