Noggins Corner Farm proudly offers agricultural- and environment-based educational programming for grades primary to six. Our programs are teacher-friendly, hands-on and interactive, which makes for a fun and educationally memorable day.
Each program is designed for a maximum length of 3.5 hours. The program fee is $6.50, per student, taxes included. Teachers, EAs and school staff are free. In addition to educational staff, we allow 1 chaperone per every 5 students free of charge. Additional chaperones pay the student rate of $6.50 per individual.
All programs also include lunch and playtime in our Barnyard Adventure Area where students can run, jump, slide and negotiate their way through a number of fun playground activities and mazes. Program content can be mixed and matched to meet needs of split classes and/or teacher preferences.
What to Expect for Your Fun Day at the Farm
When your bus rolls to a stop at our entrance, one of our friendly educational staff will hop on board to welcome all students, briefly explain farm rules and the schedule for the day.
Students will then disembark from the bus with all personal belongings and be guided to their designated picnic tables for the day.
Everyone will be given 10-15 minutes to settle in, use the washrooms and enjoy fresh apple snacks courtesy of the farm.
From here all classes will be grouped with their Noggins Corner Farm educator for the day and start off on their specific programming. Depending on the chosen program, age level and season, this may include (but is not limited to!) a nature walk, scientific experiments, the corn maze, apple picking, a farm tour, wagon ride, etc. We typically aim for at least 90 minutes of programming.
Then it’s time to fuel the fun! Upon completion of their program each group will head back to the picnic tables for lunch and then free time on our awesome playground!
Eventually it will be time to board the bus and head home. The day usually goes quite quickly…time sure flies when you’re having fun!
