East Kensington Outdoor Learning (EKOLogy)


Through daily outdoor learning experiences, children in the EKOLogy program develop a sense of wonder and gratitude in the beauty, diversity, and complexity of the world to become environmentally and socially responsible people with a passion for lifelong learning. Children in our EKOLogy program spend time each day learning outside the classroom.

Our outdoor learning program:

  • provides outdoor experiences that integrate B.C.'s curriculum with children's innate wonderings and curiosity;
  • allows teachers to facilitate emergent, experiential, inquiry-based, play-based, and place-based learning;
  • allows teachers to help children to identify, co-manage and navigate risk. Opportunities to experience risk are seen as an integral part of learning and healthy development;
  • aligns with the First Peoples Principles of Learning;
  • develops students' core competencies. Experiential learning in the outdoors fosters children's competencies as creative and critical thinkers, effective communicators, and people who are personally, socially and environmentally aware;
