Family Nature Immersion Guide

Inspired by the Forest School program, this guide features a series of itineraries and nature activities for families with children ages 0 to 5. Available in French.

Itineraries and activities

Regular contact with nature from an early age allows children to improve their motivation, concentration, motor skills, health and self-confidence, while developing their social skills. This is especially true for children from 0 to 5 years old.

Nature immersion programs such as Forest School allow children to develop strong emotional ties to nature while promoting the adoption of healthy lifestyles.
