Educational Programs

Field Trips in Halton Region

Curriculum-based, functional, hands-on, entertaining, educational – and fun. Isn’t that what school trips are all about, and it is what Country Heritage Park has to offer all grades and levels of the educational system – from kindergarten to university (and beyond). From bees, birds, chickens, and wagons, to the dirt on plants and reminding them that you are what you eat, we do it all with a flair for the historical. We break the mythology, mix in a dose of reality, and send home a well-seasoned advocate for future generations of innovators and entrepreneurs.


Below are program summaries for students in kindergarten to grade 8:
