Birth - 6yrs
We invite families with children aged birth-6yrs to learn about local plants and animals through nature play. From Sept-Nov and Jan-May, we host monthly Walk & Talks with Elders and scientists. During July and August, you can find us every Friday at the Fort St. James Farmers Market.
We engage K-7 learners in hands-on, culturally-relevant outdoor science. We support environmental inquiry and stewardship by working closely with local schools to increase their on-site capacities. We also provide transportation, meal and speaker support for seasonal, off-site G4-7 field trips.
At the secondary level, we support place-based science content that incorporates local ecosystems and economies. We mentor G8-12 learners through project-based learning, job-placement, and transition to post-secondary studies in the natural sciences.
Elders and Educators
We work with Elders and Knowledge Holders to build their skills and confidence, ensuring they will be ongoing partners in Education for Reconciliation. We work with schools and educators to increase cultural competencies and encourage learning outside the four walls of the traditional classroom.
Through strong governance, positive partnerships and responsive communications, Chuntoh Education Society is committed to sustaining our support to local communities, learners, and the land that supports us all.
