About NEED KW

“The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things.” ― Plato

The Nature-Based Early Education Directory is a resource for educators and caregivers interested in supporting the holistic education of the whole child through nature-centred, child directed programming.

NEED is not an agency. We do not screen or personally endorse any of the providers that are listed in this forum. The providers in our directory have met basic requirements to be listed which include knowledge of the Child Care and Early Years Act, incorporating nature play in to their programs, and demonstrating professionalism in their practice.

Caregivers are required to do their due diligence in interviewing and screening potential care providers in order to ensure quality of care and that they are a good fit for your family.

Are you a child care provider in the KWC area? Do you feel that your program fits within our directory? We would love to accept an application from you. Please fill out this form and we will contact you as soon as we can!
