meet our change-makers



Founder & CEO

An alumni from Concordia University's Specialization in Early Childhood + Elementary Education, Trinati dreamt up Child in the Wild Nature Day Camp after witnessing the deep transformation of her preschool students when immersed for one full day each week in the limitless classroom of The Forest, on Montreal's Mount Royal. Creating Child in the Wild Nature Summer Day Camp is her way of being able to offer more of these types of enriching (+ even life-changing) experiences for the children sharing this urban jungle. Another passion of hers includes mentoring new + future educators in how to implement this incredible way of learning within the city.

Trinati is dedicated to helping humans become more conscious + self-aware in regulating their nervous systems + being better able to respond to Life.

She does this by connecting them with nature, their own breath + bodies in her Prana + Play Practice program, as well as to the childrens' stories that she reads for families worldwide on her popular podcast:

Storytime with Tula Jane + her Mother in the Wild.

    None of this would be working as smoothly as it does without Shanice! Though she began her journey with us as a dedicated member of Child in the Wild Nature Playschool + Day Camp, registering her boys for most of Trinati's offerings, she is now a valued teammate. Her expertise + hearty support to help make this dream work possible.

    Outside of her roles with us, Shanice can be found mothering her four children, co-founding businesses + brands, as well as offering her services to many entrepreneurs + companies.

    She is passionate about supporting her community, especially Canadian Black-owned businesses.
