East Kensington Outdoor Learning (EKOLogy)
(Grades K-5)
 
Parent and Student Information Meeting: Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at East Kensington Elementary School

For the 2019-2020 school year, we will be accepting students in kindergarten to Grade 5. We have space to grow the program to Grade 7 in subsequent years.

Program Description:
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 a minimum of one-and-a-half hours 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.
