Our nature-based writing class encourages students to explore the world around them to assist in guiding their writing. The natural world provides inspiration for limitless writing topics and expression!

BEan In Nature mentors facilitate kids to love, care and connect to nature not by using a ‘teach at the child’ didactic model, instead we use the skillful art of questioning, creative guiding and mentoring, experiential child-led focus and facilitate learning by doing, where we share our contagious enthusiasm, our imagination, and our own love of nature.
Connecting to the Earth with Creative Writing and Science
We believe that connecting to nature with the guidance of a creative nature mentor, who skillfully facilitates nature awareness, ancestral skills and crafts, while out in nature’s classroom, allows children to develop a strong sense of self and a natural love of science. In this design children are naturally accessing their whole imaginations, incorporating their whole focus, all the while growing into amazing earth stewards.
Our small group setting encourages safe exploration for the child with the development of social skills, including leadership, conflict resolution and cooperation, all in a developmentally appropriate style.
