EarlyON has been offering 4 Season Outdoor Programming since the spring of 2021. We have aimed to instill a love of nature in families and help to incorporate regular outdoor time into their day. We have extended our learning to the outdoors with educator-supported environmental inquiry. Families interact with the natural environment through games, walks, creative play, crafts, stories, and more.
Programs use the outdoors – the schoolyard, the community and adjacent park/wooded areas – as natural extensions of our indoor programs.
We are outdoors despite the weather, so please dress accordingly (in the event of extreme weather conditions, families will be contacted). We have a variety of season appropriate tools available to extend your child’s learning in an exploratory and inquiry-based way.
Outdoor programming is offered to easily allow for safe, physically distanced activities for children and families. Where programming is being offered in a shared setting (e.g., park), programs work in collaboration with the local Public Health unit to follow public health advice.
