Nature Kindergarten is for our youngest learners. It is targeted at pre-schoolers and early elementary children (3-8 years). As in all our programs, we focus on free play, nature based art activities and mindfulness practices. We also sing songs, read books, try art processes and get messy!
Children will be immersed in a natural learning environment that lets them explore and follow their own curiosity. Educators work to support opportunities to push their inquiries further. This is designed especially for pre-literate children and those exploring early literacy. This program is set up to support a variety of pre /early literacy skills. Examples of these are sensory exploration, core strength, as well as hand and finger strength development, mark making practice and so much more! We give kids lots of space to explore, create and play in our beautiful forest setting.
Families will be responsible for packing a snack and a lunch for their children.

Meet Our Team
Our entire team is very comfortable and well versed in the outdoors. They also bring with them a diversity of skills and talents, from summer camps to back country camping, from art to yoga. Each educator brings their own unique background and experience to our team.
For every program, we employ a Lead Educator with a Forest School Practitioners Certification (or Equivalent) and a minimum of a Standard First Aid Certification. Each program also has another adult in a support educator role. All our Educators (whether volunteer or paid) have, a Criminal Record Check and a Child Abuse Register Check. All programs have 2 adults present at all times. Our ratios are a maximum of 7 children to 1 adult.
The exception to these guidelines, are the Forest Families: Stay and Play Drop-in and Acorn and Oaks programs, as parents stay and play with their kids for this program, therefore only a Lead Educator will be present.
Founder and Lead Educator
My name is Sarah Storm. I am the founder of the Wild Wonders Forest School. I am a mother, educator and an artist. I started camp counselling in my youth and over the years, I have been a Camp Counsellor, Fine Arts Co-ordinator and even the Camp Director at summer camps in both Alberta and Nova Scotia. I hold a Bachelors degree in Education as well as in Fine Arts degree, with a specialization in Arts Education. I’ve spent the last ten plus years substitute teaching with children of all ages, in the public school system. I finished The Child and Nature Alliance of Canada’s Forest School Practitioners Certification, in April of 2022.
As a mother, an educator and as a human being, living in the crazy world we do right now, I feel that our children need more time outside and that families need support making that happen, I want to provide that space and support network for my family and my community. I'd love it if you wanted your kids to come and play with us.
Sarah a mom of two little ones who LOVE to play in the woods. She moved to Nova Scotia from Alberta about a year ago, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Sarah loves hiking through the forests and along the beaches, discovering all the magical secrets Mother Nature presents us with. She strive to live with nature and have a new found passion for identifying plants and trees and learning all about their purposes in nature and for us. She looks forwards to getting to know you and your littles!
She enjoys sharing her love of our natural world and helping to build confidence and comfort within nature.
Jesica grew up exploring the woods around her home in Bridgewater Nova Scotia. Playing and building forts with the kids in the neighbourhood. She loves being outside so much so that her parents had a hard time getting her in for dinner most evenings!
For most of her career, she's worked in ecological landscaping. Being outdoors, gardening in nature has brought her so much joy.
She started helping with the Wild Wonders Forest School in the summer of 2021and was thrilled to get into nature with the kids to discover the forest landscape and of course, play!
In August of 2022, she welcomed her son Cameron to the world. He now tags along in the forest with us. She is looking forward to helping him, and all the children of Wild Wonders to get into the forest and interact with the beauty of nature.
