The Aurora College Early Learning and Childcare Diploma is a two-year program that enrolls 20 residents from across the NWT. After a successful pilot program in 2019/2020, Bushkids will mentor interns for the next two years, until they graduate in 2022.
In teams of 10, interns will join the Bushkids Program, participating in our Tuesday sessions with the children. Every Thursday morning, the interns will be on the Land with Bushkids to participate in planning sessions and workshops.
Topics include but are not limited to: ethical space, inquiry-based learning, risk management and assessment, site selection, Land leads learning, safe use of tools, wilderness skills, learning stories, backwards planning, writing learning stories and staying warm and comfortable on the land.
