Saskatoon

TimberNook is a nature-based program that is designed to be a sensory rich play experience that restores the mind and body. TimberNook inspires change in children through the natural environment and child driven free play.  Children have an unhurried opportunity to explore and immerse themselves in deep meaningful play using the worldwide curriculum. Our location is 15 min east of Saskatoon and the rolling prairies hills and forest are the backdrop for this grand play.

Location

Overview

TimberNook Saskatoon is a true private prairie oasis on 160 acres. You enter through the “sister trees” and follow a winding path into the bluff of poplar trees to “the clearing” where our campfire is located. Our location has many other enchanted spots such the hidden hollows, the willows, a mud pit, a gentle seasonal stream, and lots of open rolling hills of natural prairie grasslands. We provide the props and initial inspiration, and the children use their imaginations and creativity to create experiences they will never forget. Come play the TimberNook way!
