Beyond Classrooms Kingston

With Beyond Classrooms Kingston (BCK) teachers can build a week uniquely based on the curricular needs of their class and their long-term teaching goals. Students are provided opportunities for slowed-down learning to explore and journal each day. They will be able to meet the on-site experts and participate in hands-on learning. Week-long BCK programs allow students the opportunity to develop their critical thinking, inquiry, literacy, and sketching skills, all while learning about cultural heritage!

"The staff ensured that the children had opportunities to explore how healthcare has evolved since the 1800s and how it has benefitted Canada and the world.

I would highly recommend BCK programming for elementary school children so that they can learn and discover in a hands-on learning environment."

"The artifacts here make me proud to be free in Canada. They made me more interested in every soldier's past and story."
