Gold Bar Park Programs

We run full-day, half-day, and once-a-week program options in our incredible river valley to support children in the development of a sense of place, an ethic of care towards nature, and an understanding of themselves as a part of the natural world. Programs run from September to June, broken into a three-semester payment basis: Fall, Winter, and Spring.

Site School Partnership Program

The Inquiring Minds Site School partnership offers teachers an opportunity to move their classroom to a community site for a week of hands on, multi-sensory learning. Student learning is enhanced by meeting curriculum expectations through meaningful connections to the real world.

EFSS is thrilled to be working with Edmonton schools through our Inquiring Minds Forest Site School Pilot Project. Our Forest Site School weaves together the immersive inquiry approach core to Inquiring Minds Site Schools with the child-led experiences central to forest and nature learning. Through play, journaling, and guest expert interactions, this pilot project is connecting us with so many curious, confident, nature-loving educators and learners. Thank you to our participating classes for the 2020/2021 school year.

We are so grateful to our project funders for supporting us in this work:
