Choosing where to enrol your child is a hugely important and tough decision. Knowing that your child will be safe, loved and learning is what matters most. To hopefully help aid your decision, whilst Woods and Waves gets off the ground, I’d love to share some of the kind words parents from my previous schools have said. Please find a small selction of these here. More can be found on our Facebook page by clicking below.
"Graham's teaching approach is unique. It is practical, helps children to develop confidence and encourages critical thinking."
"Mr Graham is an excellent teacher and communicator. He is calm, comforting and competent. He was one of our favourite teachers and even though it's been a couple years, my son still talks about him and the outdoor adventures they had together."
"Mr Graham has a very gentle nature and cares deeply about the kids. At the end of the day, when I expect teachers to be tired, he'd still be reading to the kids and making sure he gives them an opportunity to learn. He has a vast knowledge about nature and my daughter learned so much wit him, while having lots of fun. I highly recommend Mr. Graham as an educator."
"Our daughter had the honour of having Mr.Fraser as one of her Junior Kindergarten teachers last year. Her favourite part of school was the outdoor & explore aspect of the program with Mr.Fraser. Everyday rain or shine the kids would have an amazing adventure learning and playing in nature. He is very patient and kind with the children and has a huge heart. Before starting school my daughter was nervous of male teachers, but that changed within one day meeting Mr. Fraser"
"From our first day there where he led us on a field trip to the bird sanctuary, to an average day on the beach or forest trail - Mr. Graham created endless learning opportunities for his students and showed enthusiasm in all he does. Truly an exceptional teacher and we are privileged to have shared our preschool days with Mr. Graham!"
"Mr Graham cared for my daughter at Alderwood School from when she was 2 years to 4 years old. Hands down, he is an amazing teacher, and excellent in the outdoor learning environment. I remember how he always found creative ways to learn in the forest, whether using their imagination to create play theatre to discover numbers, colours, and letters through the natural environment. He is calm, caring, and thoughtful and very understanding of young children's learning, social, and emotional needs."
“We love that our daughter spends less time with toys and builds her imagination in new ways outdoors. She has also learned to adapt to the weather and have fun no matter the weather. Another plus that has come from Woods and Waves is that she can haul a load so much farther than I ever expected”.
“Our son loves being outside at W&W and sleeps well and is more well regulated from all the fresh air and exercise. He loves the adventurous component too and the friendships he made.”
