Timbernook-Peterborough, a division of Compass Early Learning and Care, brings transformative, sensory rich outdoor experiences to Peterborough and the Kawarthas. Timbernook-Peterborough strives to provide authentic, inspiring creative play in the great outdoors.


Compass ELC is proud to bring TimberNook to a variety of fantastic locations in Peterborough Country. Our main site for TimberNook-Peterborough is located at Dance Nature Sanctuary in Selwyn, Ontario, owned and maintained by Kawartha Land Trust.

Nestled in a grove of cedar trees amongst 99 acres of land, our space is split by a meandering creek, lending itself to providing the ultimate sensory experiences. To learn more about this space, visit
