At the Forest Learning Lab, non-traditional instruction meets the non-traditional Outdoor Classroom of Beckley Creek Park with its forests, meadows, and aquatic habitats! Led by Parklands Interpretive Rangers—all of whom are trained educators and scientists—the Forest Learning Lab offers students a structured day of non-traditional instruction, homework help, and outdoor exploration time. Classes are almost entirely outdoors each day to provide a safe, engaging environment for your child to thrive during NTI.
Forest Learning Lab sessions are offered weekly for kids in grades 1-3 and 4-6. To make NTI as flexible as possible, parents can enroll kids in a full week or select single days that best fit their schedule. Additional dates may be added as needed.
Drop-off is from 8 - 8:30 a.m. and pick-up is from 3:30 - 4 p.m. Each day, participants will need to bring a lunch, snack, water bottle, mask, headphones and learning device (tablet, laptop or smartphone).
