Nature Kindergarten

After a successful pilot of Nature Kindergarten at Sangster Elementary, the Board of Education at School District 62 is continuing to support the program into the 2014/2015 school year.

At SD62 we recognized that emotional intelligence is an important tool in education. Nature Kindergarten allows children to be immersed in nature where they engage all of their five senses at once. This produces positive results in the development of the child, physically, emotionally and intellectually. We think a program like this should be available to all students and so the district is exploring ways to expand what has been learned at Nature Kindergarten to other grade levels. As another positive step, the district will also be exploring opening one or two new Nature Kindergarten classes in September 2015.
