Vancouver Outdoor School

At Vancouver Outdoor School, we provide outdoor experiential learning-based programs and services to schools, organizations and families in the Lower Mainland. We custom-design our learning experiences to fit your needs, budget and curriculum goals. We are also home to Field School, a 100% outdoor homeschooling option for primary and intermediate students in Vancouver, Delta and Port Moody.

Like you, we believe students thrive in an outdoor educational setting and where experiential learning is woven naturally into a student’s learning journey. Our courses are designed for students to immerse themselves in the wonders of nature-based learning while developing deeper wisdom through outdoor skill-building. Students work, discover and play in parks, forests, hiking trails, beaches and lakes. Our learning experiences support social-emotional development and student wellness.

Rachel Gilbert Sleep Consulting

Former special education teacher (B.S. Special Education and Early Childhood Education), mama, and now certified pediatric sleep consultant passionate about teaching other families how to get the sleep they need without struggle.

In my professional life as a teacher, I saw the direct impact sleep had on performance and behaviors in the classroom and often wished there was something I could do to help.

As a new mom, baby sleep was completely foreign to me. After months of sleepless nights and exhaustive internet searches, we were finally able to solve my little girl’s sleep problems and get the sleep we all needed.

I knew this was something I wanted to teach and share with other parents, and so after I left teaching to be a stay-at-home mom, I looked into it and became certified as a pediatric sleep consultant. I now work with children of all abilities, 0-10 years old.

As a sleep consultant, I recognize that not all babies, toddlers or children are the same (obviously!) So why would a one-size-fits-all plan found on the internet solve your precious little one’s sleep struggles? This is where I come in. Together, we will design a plan to fit your family’s needs and schedule that is both gentle and respectful to your child's personality and developmental needs.
