The teacher candidate will work alongside our forest preschool teacher in the Treehouse Forest Preschool to discover all the benefits to the children in this nature-based outdoor forest setting. Building a nature-based program from our well-established curriculum is a valuable tool to gain experience. Our intended impact would be to foster confidence and sense of self in children. Observing the children and providing them with space, intentional play and a wholesome environment to learn are very important aspects of our philosophy which we would like to share with the students.
The Clubhouse Child Care Center has a contract with the Regional District to run a forest preschool at Woodhaven Regional Park. The preschool currently operates three mornings per week for 3 and 4 year-olds and provides a nature-based forest setting for ultimate outdoor learning.
