Head Start Program
Explore the Outdoors
Drop-in parent and child developmental play group
Did you know anything you can teach a child in a classroom, you can also teach them outdoors?
Let's explore the outdoors! Join us outside to explore the benefits of risky play and connecting with nature. Together, we will test boundaries and feelings around risky play, explore new heights, and interact with the world around us.
Explore the Outdoors takes place outside Norwood Centre. See schedule >
