Explorers Preschool is the first school in Saskatchewan to be a certified TimberNook school. TimberNook provides nature-based play experiences for children that challenge the senses and inspire creativity, independence, and imagination in the great outdoors.

​​​​​​​TimberNook  curriculum gets children moving, exploring, and thinking in new creative ways that simply cannot be accomplished inside the classroom.  TimberNook  provides innovative outdoor play experiences for children that challenges the mind and body. 

 

The TimberNook weekly curriculum is restoring play and it’s benefits to education. Nature is the ultimate sensory experience!  These experiences allow children to participate and learn at their own pace.

Testimonials

 

There really are no words to fully describe how wonderful Mrs. Bettker is. She has created the most beautiful preschool space, but the best part about the preschool really is the teacher. It is so evident that Shelley was born to work with young children. Her patience, enthusiasm and warm heart are so appreciated. I'm so thankful we have found her, and that she has been able to shine some of her beautiful heart on Lucy. She is everything and more we have hoped we would find in a preschool teacher. We can't thank her enough.

-Stefanie P.

As a kindergarten Teacher I have high expectations of what the ideal preschool should be. Mrs Bettker has exceeded my expectations and more. She is an amazing, caring, patient, and creative Teacher. She always goes above and beyond. Our daughter loved this preschool and Mrs Bettker. We are all sad to say goodbye but so thankful our daughter experienced a wonderful year of exploration and play. Thank you Shelley!!

-Dana H.

Mrs. Bettker is warm, welcoming, kind, and focused on inquiry learning in her classroom. She provided incredible opportunities in most aspects of my child's development including social, emotional, and academic skills. We are so very grateful for her positive care and kind leadership in the classroom.
