About the Parry Sound Forest School

We are a non-profit organization incorporated in 2020. Since that time, we have expanded to three sites, have offered land-based learning opportunities to over five hundred children and employ fifteen full and part time staff. We offer day programming during the school year, after school programs, summer day camp and public-school visits in both English and French.

The role of the educator in Forest School is to support children in their learning and discoveries. Students are provided with materials, tools, resources, and support, but the learning that transpires results from the children and their interests and discoveries.  There is no set curriculum. As such, each student will experience forest school differently, allowing for a truly child-centered approach.

We aim to provide the opportunity for children to disconnect from technology and connect with nature and each other through play. Parry Sound Forest School (PSFS) strives to provide a child-centered experience where our learners can develop greater resilience, perseverance, communication and social skills, the ability to navigate risk safely and form personal connections to many facets of the Georgian Bay Biosphere.

Through this personal connection with nature, we strive to foster an ethic of care towards our local environment, and ultimately towards living a more ecologically sustainable life.
