The Carp Ridge Learning Centre (CRLC) Charity is currently in a transitional phase and no longer manages any of the educational or outdoor activity programs at the EcoWellness Centre.
There is still an outdoor school on-site (Ridgewoods Outdoor Programs), which is managed and directed by Ms. Sara Raeesi, who has our full endorsement and support. For any questions regarding childhood educational programs at Carp Ridge EcoWellness Centre please contact Sara directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more at the Nature Programs page.
You will find information about the original Forest School further down the page.
The CRLC charity is supervised by a Board of Directors, which is currently chaired by Jacqui Ehninger-Cuervo. For any inquiries regarding the charity, or to volunteer your services, you can email Jacqui at email@example.com
Between 2008 and 2013, Carp Ridge Forest Preschool & Kindergarten was developed and hosted at the Learning Centre. These groundbreaking programs were the first of their kind in Canada. The Carp Forest School programs are now closed as they make a transition to a site in Nepean.
In 2012, Forest School Canada was commenced. With program & site development now in-process in Ottawa, FSC is a national initiative whose mission is to foster rich learning experiences, ecological literacy, and healthy living by connecting children to nature through the use of the Forest School model in the early, primary, and secondary years.
