Nature Education for Sustainable Todays and Tomorrows

Davis Bay NEST, Nature Based Education for Sustainable Today’s and Tomorrow’s is a public school program that offers students hands on and experiential learning using nature as its classroom and its lens.  Inquiry, play, child-centred, space-placed, and project based learning are foundational components of the program, while continuing to honour the B.C. curriculum and its guidelines for primary/early intermediate learning. With Nature as co-teacher, this program aims to grow green hearts and green minds as well as build strong connections to self, community and the natural world.
