Outdoor / Drop-In

Loose Parts in the Playscape/Park

Drop-In ǀ Children 0 to 6 years old

Have you noticed that when you give a child a gift, they are more interested in exploring the box and wrapping than in what is inside? That is what loose parts are all about!  Loose parts could be a plastic tube, a cardboard box, sticks or stones. What happens when your child finds these materials outside? Children are naturally curious and when we invite them to explore loose parts in our outdoor space, there is freedom to move and explore.

The possibilities are endless! Come join us for some fun.

Why Won't My Child Listen to Me???

Families with children 15 months to 4 years old

Single Session ǀ Preregister Here

How often do you find yourself saying or thinking this? Well, you’re not alone!

Helping our children learn how to listen is a difficult and sometimes confusing task. How we communicate with them can really make a difference.

In this session we’ll share a few strategies and tips on how we, as parents, can communicate with our children in ways that build relationships, encourage desirable behaviour, and improve our children’s listening skills.
