GROWING ROOTS AIMS TO PROVIDE THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR CHILDREN TO DEEPEN THEIR CONNECTION WITH THE NATURAL WORLD THROUGH PLACE-BASED, CHILD-DIRECTED AND PLAY-BASED LEARNING IN AN OUTDOOR SETTING.
This child-directed play-based program will provide experiences that foster a growing relationship with the natural world. Through DISCOVERY, HEALTHY RISK-TAKING and MESSY FUN, participants will deepen their connection with nature, problem-solve and build on age-appropriate social skills. Our WHOLE-CHILD approach will provide an ideal learning environment. Located within the Town of Cochrane, close to the mighty Bow River and only a short drive from Calgary, Bearspaw and Springbank. Our location gives us access to forests, meadows and lagoons to discover and play in. When the days are REALLY frosty, we will have access to an indoor building for warming toes.
