    Studies have shown the importance of providing young children with physical fitness activities, connecting with nature, and the opportunity for engaging in playful experiences outdoors whatever the weather or the season. This series will focus on each of Canada’s four seasons and include thought provoking discussions, information sharing, and tools and resources for review, as well as curriculum strategies designed to keep children active and engaged in our outdoor environments during all twelve months of the year.

    The early learning and childcare field has experienced a year that has presented itself with unique challenges and exciting opportunities. In reflecting upon the year, we have learned so much that has changed our daily practice. In this series we will be exploring the ideas that link into Community Strategies for Engaging Families, Documentation for Early Learning Environments, Provoking Children’s Learning through Outdoor Experiences, and Considerations for Unique Program Design. The sessions were created from feedback and learning within the early learning community as well as linked to research. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect upon daily practice, engage in conversation with fellow educators, consider ways for implementation, and action plan for moving forward.
