Hand-In-Hand Early Years Nature Education Program (hand-in-handeducation.com) is an outdoor educational program, located in the Comox Valley, that is designed to offer a unique early childhood learning experience for children aged 3-5 years. Our classroom is the natural environment. Our chairs are the logs, our pencils are the sticks and our possibilities are endless!

The program is offered Monday to Friday from 9am to 12pm, outside, as this is an environmental educational program. Our programs are facilitated by two certified and experienced Early Childhood Educators that will teach a maximum of 16 children. Expanding on the BC Ministry of Education’s Early Learning Framework, the emphasis of our program will be on a nature and play-based curriculum and will encourage preschoolers to engage with their environment through art, music, games, physical activities and group learning.
