Little Paws Outdoor Classroom

Connecting Children With
Nature Through Outdoor Learning

We offer an inquiry and play-based education in the outdoors for preschoolers. Children participate in four hours of experiential learning sessions while exploring and connecting with Stanley Park, Vancouver's natural environment and community.

 
All activities are designed to nurture the emotional and intellectual growth of our kids adequately. Through stimulating situations and hands-on learning opportunities, young children are free to develop into bright young minds.

I can't say enough good things but I will say, if you have any hesitancy about an outdoor program, I think you'd be very happy with Little Paws. (...)"
