K-9 Blended & Online Learning Options
The Grove offers several options for learning at home with both Blended and Distributed Learning programs for Kindergarten to Grade 9.
The Grove exists to help support families who want to learn outside of the four walls of a school. Our programs serve those families that identify as home schoolers, home learners, unschoolers and everyone in between. As we are a part of the Cowichan Valley School District, all of our exceptional programs free for families to enroll in. Each of our programs is led by a BC Certified teacher who provides families with curriculum resources and instructional support. Teachers and families work together to engage students in a personalized program that follows the BC curriculum. This enables students to learn and grow at their own pace.

A little bit about us…
The Grove Nature Collective helps inquisitive learners connect with nature while exploring their interests. This is a blended program where students spend one to two days a week on 400 acres, outside in nature on Providence Farm. With a focus on using place-based, experiential learning, and imaginative play as our curriculum, our students excel at building close connections to all they encounter. Our fundamental values are student centred, rooted in attachment theory, and foster a genuine connection between teachers, parents, mentors, and children. Our program creates caring environment where children have a voice and take care of each other and the environment.
