UBC Farms Multi-age Program

Saplings Multi-age Program is nature-based, and has the benefit of muddying age-based comparisons and competition that occurs between children. We provide children with an opportunity to connect to the natural environment in a safe and enjoyable way. We view children as imaginative, resourceful, and inquisitive beings who are most comfortable in a natural setting. Children are encouraged to engage in activities that interest them, while our educators act as facilitators in the natural learning process.

Offered Mondays & Tuesdays 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Our after-school programs allow kids to explore and experience the natural world through practical involvement. We believe the outdoors encourages imaginative play, creativity, hand-eye coordination, physical strength, and mental clarity. Our educators encourage  children to develop their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Additionally, a multi-age environment promotes cooperation and teamwork, while raising children’s emotional awareness.

Offered Monday – Friday 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
