Registration for the Tiffin Nature Program​​ today!

Geared towards pre-K and children in kindergarten, our nature​ program will help your children gain knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the natural world and our amazing planet.

Children can attend Tiffin Nature Programming once a week, on a ​half day/whole day basis.​​

This program focuses on child-led, open-ended and play ​based learning. Children learn about risky play, and develop a better understanding of their relationship with the land.

Half Day Program (Tuesdays 9:30 am - 12:30 pm): $130 per child

Full Day Program (Thursdays 9:30 am - 3:30 pm) : $250 per child​

Parents have the option to stay for the half day program. The full day program is drop off only. Each program will have 1 educators for 6​ children.​


The Tiffin Nature Program is based out of the Tiffin Centre for Education. With 300 acres of forest to explore, the home base of the Tiffin Nature Program will be at the Forest Cabin, but depending on the children's interests, we will go to the Free Play Forest, Picnic Pavillion, explore in the trails and more!

Risky Pl​ay

We recognize that there is immense value in play that is exciting and challenging, which allows children to grow their skill sets and see themselves as capable people. There can be minor injuries with such play, however it is through these opportunities that children learn how to regulate themselves, assess risk, and learn their limitations.
