We have explored many rental properties but have yet to find the right match. We are looking for a suitable indoor space to meet the Ministry of Education and local building/fire regulations. Ideally a space that has playrooms (1000sq ft or more), a kitchen, washrooms and storage. And most importantly, we require a nearby forest/woodlot/wild space where our children can play and connect with the natural world from a very young age.
There is a shortage of daycare spaces and choices for young families in the Town of the Blue Mountains. This is strongly linked to a shrinking labour pool and is a major decision making factor when young families are choosing to move out of the city. Furthermore, families who move here are often moving for our recreation focused area and access to nature. Parents are now seeking educational programming that matches their values of ecological connection, which explains the boom in local Forest Schools.
If you own a rental space or have an idea for our Forest Preschool please get in touch!! Contact Kimberly Edwards 519-379-3634 firstname.lastname@example.org.
