Outside

Going outside is extremely important to Little Scholars Montessori & Children’s Village. Within all of our programs part of our daily routine is exploring the outdoors. Each day the children are outside in the morning and in the afternoon. Little Scholars offer a large front play area with a sandbox an area for riding tricycles and an art corner. Thanks to Trail Health and Environment we have received wonderful new grass free from lead and other pollutants.

The children are regularly taken on neighbourhood walks and have spent time at Popel park and Gyro water park. In the winter you will find our front lawn covered in coulourful snow and beautiful child designed snow forts. The Village is located across the street from a large field that offers additional opportunities for larger co-operative games such as, parachute play, soccer, tag and other creative imaginary exploration.

The Montessori has implemented an outdoor Curriculum as of fall of 2014. In order to develop the whole child a strong Montessori Philosophy; exploring the great outdoors has become an essential part of our children’s growth. Each month the children will experience the opportunity to hike some of our wonderful hiking trail here in Trail. During our outdoor adventures the children will explore nature, play games and gain respect for our natural environment. When the children find interesting things in nature, we will bring them back to the classroom to explore them further.
