Peterborough, Ontario

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.


While we use a variety of fantastic locations here at Timbernook-Peterborough, our main site is located at Northcote Campus, part of Lakefield College School. This historic property once belonged to beloved Peterborough resident, Dr Gastle.

Our "hollow", as we affectionately call it, is nestled inside 160 acres of varying landscape- tall cedar trees, swampy marshes and beautiful shorelines of Lake Katchewanooka. There are endless nooks and crannies to explore, small wildlife and birds to observe, and magical places to get lost in imagination.

Each series of the Wild Ones program will focus on a different theme with new adventures that ignite the senses, challenge the mind and foster a sense of community. Children will engage in a multitude of fun and challenging activities, including creating an adventure playground, learning about the properties of physics, and using their new outdoor skills to locate buried treasure and build pirate traps with their mates! They’ll also get plenty of time to learn about the natural world, cook over an open fire, play and create their own little world in the woods with friends. Programs may vary based on location.
