Verdun Summer Parks Program:
Little Explorers is an outdoor program where families meet for playtime and adventures. Little Explorers is a way for families to develop confidence in outdoor free play in a safe, supportive environment, for children to learn from each other, for parents to build connections, and a place to learn to enjoy being outside in all kinds of conditions! In the winter, we may toboggan, examine snowflakes, cook in snow kitchens, build snow forts, or look for animal tracks. In the spring, we may look for snails, jump in puddles, or dig in the dirt. In the summer, we may play in the sand, build swings, chase butterflies, or paint. In the fall, we may collect leaves, create forts, or make mud pies. Little Explorers is a space for children to lead their play, centred on our relationship with the lands we play on, and inspired by the principles of Forest and Nature Schools
