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.

Tiffin Nature Program is hosted at the Tiffin Centre for Conservation, just 15 minutes outside of Barrie, Angus and Innisfil, and 25 minutes from New Tecumseth.​

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.

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.
