The morning is a time for the children to play and participate in a circle with rhymes and songs. It is also a time for parents to socialize, share parenting journeys and renew themselves. The program will be offered on Thursdays on the Tapiola Nature Centre at 140 Pento Rd., T-Bay. Tapiola is a recreational site with forest, trails and a river, next door to the North McIntyre Recreation Centre, which has a playground.
Program – 9-10:00 – Walk, 10:00-10:30 – Circle, 10:30-11:00 – Snack & Parent’s Sharing, 11:00 – North McIntyre Playground
The schedule is flexible and can be attended according to your child’s needs. Parents will find children of similar ages and enjoy their time together on our nature campus. Mom’s with babies may consider coming at 9ish so that they can leave early to accommodate a morning nap. Or come for a walk around the beautiful Tapiola property with a baby sling/wrap in which baby can sleep. Please bring a snack to share.
The program is offered by Arlene Thorn. Registration is requested for each term and can be completed on-line.
We look forward to welcoming you to our circle.
