Public School

Our Great Programs!

+ Forest & Nature School

Forest School is an educational approach that started in Scandinavia and has been around for 50 + years. Children foster their curiosity and develop great ideas in an outdoor setting by learning and playing in nature. Students follow the Ontario curriculum and as often as possible the outdoor environment serves as the classroom. 

+ Roots of Empathy

Roots of Empathy is an international, evidence-based classroom program that has shown significant effect in reducing levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. At the heart of the program are a neighbourhood infant and parent who visit the classroom every three weeks over the school year. Sudents observe the baby’s development and learn to label the baby’s feelings. In this experiential learning, the baby is the “Teacher” and a lever, which the instructor uses to help children identify and reflect on their own feelings and the feelings of others.

+ Scouts Canada

For more than 100 years, Scouts Canada has brought a world of adventure, outdoor experience, friendship and fun to 17 million Canadian youth. Scouts Canada engages youth, involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process by guiding children to be self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed. Keewatin Public School’s Scouts program is one of few across the country that operates during the school day.

+ Free Swimming Lessons for K-6

At Keewatin Public School, our staff is extremely proud of our innovative programing! We are focused on delivering high-quality outdoor and environmental education for Kindergarten to Grade 6 based on Forest School ethos and pedagogy. Forest School is an educational approach that started in Scandinavia and has been around for over 50 years. Children foster their curiosity and develop great ideas in an outdoor setting by learning and playing in nature. Key school staff, certified as Forest School Practitioners (Child and Nature Alliance of Canada) deliver outdoor experiences for children based on Ontario curriculum expectations using the outdoors as the classroom. Children play, create, explore, learn and solve problems with their peers in a natural environment through regular and repeated access to the same natural space over the course of the school year. Keewatin Public School is the perfect location for KINDERGARTEN FOREST SCHOOL! There is a shuttle available to and from Keewatin Public School that picks up and drops off at Manidoo Baawaatig in Kenora for students who want to register for Forest School but don’t live in the Keewatin Public School attendance boundary.

Our newly built outdoor learning environment based on the four elements of earth, wind, water and fire includes an amphitheater with natural seating and a view of Darlington Bay, a working sun dial, water play area, wind chimes and whale drums for children to play and explore. Our gardening and composting program is unique and provides an opportunity for learning how to grow and harvest vegetables.

In addition to our After-Care program, plans are underway to renovate and modernize our Kindergarten classroom and add a Before-Care and DAYCARE to the primary wing in the summer of 2019!

Our partnership with Scouts Canada provides an opportunity for young children to reap the benefits of Beaver Scouts (offered during the evening) and Cub Scouts (offered after school). Swimming lessons are provided to all children from Kindergarten to Grade 6 “FREE OF CHARGE” thanks to fundraising efforts on behalf of School Council. We also hold monthly Seven Grandfather Teaching assemblies to promote physical activity, creativity, self-expression and build our strong sense of community. Our playground is absolutely huge with lots of space to run and play including a soccer field, basketball court, Big Foot Slide, climbing structures and a dedicated Kindergarten playground.

Parents and families are a VERY important part of Keewatin Public School’s equation for success. They are made to feel welcome in the school, encouraged to participate and volunteer in the classrooms as their schedules permit, and are involved in decision making at an individual level and at the broader school level. Our active School Council hosts several events during the school year including Trunk ‘N Treat, Turkey Feast, Family Movie Nights and Community Family Fun Day to name a few. New members are always welcome! The EarlyOn Best Start Hub, geared for families with pre-school children, operates out of Keewatin Public School once per week.
