Terra Nova Nature School Tour

Now in it’s ninth year, coordinators Kate Dawson and Emily Vera will share their journey of opening and operating Terra Nova Nature School in Terra Nova Rural Park. They will discuss the ways in which Indigenous ways of knowing; Forest Schools; and the philosophies of Reggio Emilia, come together to guide their emergent and place-based curriculum. Situated in Terra Nova Rural Park, TNNS offers licensed preschool and educational programs for children ages birth to 15 years. Participants will spend time inside the school as well as outside in the park. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and outdoor clothing appropriate to the weather. TNNS is jointly operated jointly Thompson Community Association, and the City of Richmond.
