Outdoor Learning in Manitoba

Last month, enid and I were fortunate enough to travel to Winnipeg, Manitoba to present a workshop to over 200 educators from around the province.  The workshop was supported by the Ministry of Education, and invited early childhood educators, administrators, teachers, and school board trustees to spend the day learning about our Nature Kindergarten experience in the Sooke School District.  We also had an opportunity to collect information from the participants and get a sense of the outdoor learning programs and initiatives they were engaged in.  The enthusiasm for moving learning into nature was inspiring!

While in Winnipeg, we had a chance to visit the Discovery Children’s Centre.  This daycare facility, not far from downtown Winnipeg, offers a variety of outdoor experiences for it’s participants.  The photos below will give you a feel for some of the outdoor learning spaces …Play Area Canoe to Play InOutdoor Play Shelter
