About Us

Hello, I am Terri Kottwitz Owner/Director of ForestKids Early Learning Centre, a locally-owned and family-oriented childcare facility.
Our early childhood educators provide nurturing and stimulating environments based on developmentally and individually appropriate daily programs in a natural setting.

Our early childhood education program for your children include :

  • Best practices to explore, investigate and communicate with friends and care-givers.
  • Opportunities to build on their experiences and interests and to celebrate their individuality and cultural background.
  • Planned programs to develop physically, socially, emotionally, morally, spiritually, cognitively, creatively and musically.
  • A healthy environment to enhance self-esteem, encourage play, participation while serving individual needs.
  • Support through parent involvement and on-going communication.
  • Best practices for an inclusive childcare environment.
  • We accept children ages 3 months to 12 years with after-school care.

    ForestKids Early Learning have been verified to be using The CedarSong Way teaching methodology including a commitment to nature immersion and unstructured free play, flow learning, inquiry-based teaching, emergent curriculum and documentation of the learning.
