It is the third year that the Brussels Outdoor School runs the learning programme: “Graines de BOS”: two days a week of Forest School inspired by the Montessori pedagogy. Our pedagogical approach aims at developping emotional, personal and social skills through the discovery of nature.
Wednesday group: 3 to 12 years old from September 2020 - June 2021
- as much time as possible outdoors
- 3 educators per 16 children
- bilingual (dutch and french)
-free play and child-led learning (Montessori approach)
- respect of each child’s uniqueness
- respecting every child's authonomy, curiosity and rythm
The cost of a one day a week programme is 37 euro per day, 150 euro per month.
We are aware that our fees are still high, and that this might be an obstacle for many families willing to join our project. At the moment BOS is still depending on parents contributions but we are looking for fundings and subsidies so that in the future we can be affordable for everyone. Sometimes we are in the conditions to allow a price reduction as exchange of volunteering.
The day at Graines de BOS starts at 8,30 and ends at 15:30.
We establish activities taking into account ages, interests, and needs of the group. This gives every child the opportunity to find her / his place in the group at their own speed. Therefore, no one day is the same at BOS, as we listen to the children's interest and we follow their curiosity every day.
We have the option to provide paid day-care after the activities, contact us if you want to discuss this option.
After two great years spent in Rouge Cloitre (Auderghem), we recently moved to a new magical location: the Domain of Manoir d'Anjou (Woluwe St. Pierre) . Thanks to Les Fraternités du Bon Pasteur we found a perfect place where we can develop our activities and really build a home for BOS!
You can find us at Rue au bois/bosstraat 365 B, 1150 Woluwe-Saint Pierre
Once you are at the end of the driveway you will find our logo to guide you to our place.
Participation as a parent
Our parents are the engine of our community!
At BOS, parents are always welcome: we encourage parents to get involved in all the aspects of the project: from the governance of our organization, to fundraising, cooking, or joining our forest adventures! Feel free to contact us if you want to help out or support the project in any way!
