Just $5 dollars helps fund our forest

Remember those childhood days when you just couldn’t wait to get outside? You thought you were playing but what you were really doing was learning. With nature as your classroom, you were learning teamwork, sharing, exploring, questioning (How do flowers really grow?) and how big the world can be when you add your imagination to it. Learning through nature is at the core of the Kamloops Child Development Centre – and our amazingly big yard is a key component: our own natural classroom for our children to play and learn.

This classroom needs to continue to grow and it’s the focus of our major fundraising project now. Our plans include replacing the decade-old equipment and, in its place, building a natural wonderland that researchers can confirm brings so many benefits to our ever-growing number of children who come to our centre, not just for care but, as our name says so dryly, to develop. We prefer to Continue reading Just $5 dollars helps fund our forest
