How do I dress my child appropriately for a day of Forest School?
We have dedicated a large section of our Parent Handbook to this very detail. Please refer to this for information on all weather types and seasons. Children thrive in the outdoors best when they are dressed in appropriate clothing for the presenting weather. We offer an online gear swap on facebook for all registered families to help grow your outdoor gear collections!
What happens when the weather is inclement on a day of Forest School?
Please refer to our Parent Handbook which details our inclement weather policy. Note that school will typically be cancelled when the Simcoe County buses in the NORTH zone are cancelled. This ensures everyone’s safety. Classes will not be made up due to weather cancellations.
