We love to bring adventure and wonder to the lives of children in our programs. See below for some testimonials about the Saplings’ experience!


My son loves the Saplings Outdoor Program. We enrolled him to attend the programs at Hay Park and Gleneagles Community Centre and both were extremely well run. Our son loves the teachers, and has also made close friends over the past 2 years. Because of the Sapling program, he loves spending time outside learning about the plants and animals of BC. It is an experience that I wish I had growing up, but glad that my son is able to enjoy it today, while respecting and being one with nature. Thank you!

I appreciate the respect and positive energy Heather and Jenn bring to the kids they teach. My daughter’s sense of wonder and joy of cooperative play has been heightened with each passing week. I love seeing her smily dirty face every time I pick her up from outdoor school.

Declan loves Saplings Outdoor Program. Cooking in the mud kitchen, advancing his tree climbing skills, and exploring bug diversity are just some of the many highlights of Declan’s outdoor preschool day. Jennifer and Heather are thoughtful and gifted educators and care givers who obviously love both the natural world and being with preschoolers. They have crafted an awesome program that incorporates the many benefits of nature-based exportation into two hours of happy, kid-centred, empowering fun.


Declan comes home encouraged and exhausted with mud in his eyebrows. It is a delightful thing.
