Kimberley & Cranbrook Branch
Vary depending on program
Fall 2024 Registration

Calling all young explorers to join us in learning from and about the place we call home!

Using a play-based, child-led, emergent curriculum, young explorers are offered time and space to build, play, and engage with one another. Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook’s Forest and Nature School offers regular and repeated access to nature across every season which allows children to become the magic themselves, showing us what an amazing teacher nature is herself.
