Mission Statement

The mission of Terra Nova Nature School is to connect young children with their community and the outdoor landscape by offering direct experiences with nature and gardening on the Terra Nova Rural Parklands. We believe that the whole community benefits when children learn to value and recognize our natural resources; participate in the cultivation of a local food system; and represent their knowledge, ideas and perspectives in a multitude of ways.

Thompson Community Association, and The City of Richmond have partnered together to create Terra Nova Nature School. The program is facilitated by Early Childhood Educators and offers morning and afternoon programs for children aged 3-5.
