About Our Auction
EPIC Learning Centre (EPIC) is a community-created, nature-based K- 3/4 blended distributed learning (DL) centre in Victoria, BC. We are excited to announce a new site partnership with Power to Be on Prospect Lake, the traditional land of the Songhees, Esquimalt, Malahat and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.
Funds raised this year will support EPIC’s bursary program and help us fulfill dreams of unique programming for our community (e.g., classes will continue to learn how to tan salmon skins, dye with plants and dissect a squid!).
Thank you for helping learners get their Vitamin “N” for nature! It helps them stay grounded. (The good kind!) We're grateful to spend school days connecting with our community, the living world and ourselves.
Much gratitude to the local businesses and individual donors who supported us in our 3rd annual online auction. We know you’re also nature-lovin’ and believe in the power of community. Please bid!

About EPIC Learning Centre
EPIC Learning Centre (EPIC) is a community-created, nature-based K-2 blended distributed learning (DL) centre. We ‘opened our doors’ in September 2019 in the Cadboro Bay Area of Victoria.
Learning at EPIC will be deeply rooted in a relationship with the natural world and our goal is to build a multi-generational, diverse learning community.
Children are valued and seen. Each individual child follows their own path with the respectful loving guidance of the community.
Children develop an integrated connection to self.
Children are active members of the community with agency and power.
Children’s creative play is essential to learning and development.
Children see beauty surrounding them. We affirm that this beauty is inherent to us all and is a source of our interconnectedness.
Children fall deeply in love with the Earth, leading to a commitment to protect the natural world.
Children are supported in communicating with one another respectfully. Conscious communication is seen as fundamental to the learning experience.
The bonds between children and community are mutual and supportive.
Self-awareness is cultivated and diversity is celebrated.
Systems of privilege and oppression are actively challenged.
We honour indigenous lands, cultures, relationships and ways of knowing. We seek to consciously incorporate this knowledge into our words, teachings and actions.

Children are co-teachers.
