Nature Kindergarten is an optional extension program based at Muir Lake School and focused on providing meaningful student engagement in a nature-based setting while addressing kindergarten curriculum.
With our ultimate goal being student success and well-being, we ensure children spend the majority of their day outside exploring the local environment as inspiration for their learning. Nature Kindergarten nurtures independent, confident and resilient learners with a zeal for problem-solving. Physical literacy and lifelong health and well-being are fostered through outdoor adventures that contribute to the social and emotional assets of individual health.
Space is still available in the 2022-2023 Nature Kindergarten Program. To apply, please complete and submit all material in the 2022-2023 Nature Kindergarten Application Package.
- Your child must first be registered for a recognized Alberta Kindergarten program (such as Parkland School Division's regular Kindergarten program) before they can be registered in the Nature-Based Kindergarten program. While priority shall be given to Parkland School Division students, out-of-division applicants may be considered if space and resources are available.
- The 2021-2022 Nature Kindergarten Application Form will continue to accept applications for the current school year as long as space remains available in the Nature Kindergarten program. Please use the correct form when submitting your application: the 2021-2022 form cannot be used to apply for the 2022-2023 school year.
Complete information on the registration process can be found on the Parkland School Division Registration page.
