FREE Online Course on OUTDOOR PLAY!

We just received this information from a new post on Technology Rich Inquiry Based Research by Diane Kashin. Children have a right to environments that offer them the opportunity to experience adventurous, challenging and even risky play as it is important to children’s development and overall well-being (Dietze & Kashin, 2017). These words are from a module on risky play that is part of a free outdoor play training course composed of 12 modules. If you are interested in signing up there is an upcoming April intake and the information is attached.


HOP for Muscular Dystrophy Canada

Muscular Dystrophy Canada's HOP for Muscular Dystrophy is a national educational fundraising initiative that promotes compassion, caring and acceptance of differing abilities. The program provides an early introduction to inclusiveness and understanding of physical differences and these differences do not change people on the inside. Funds raised through HOP for Muscular Dystrophy support the tens of thousands of Canadians affected by a neuromuscular disorder through research, education and services.
