A typical summer morning begins at 9:00 am when children are dropped off at The Arts Building Play Garden. Free play in the big sand pit and grassy knoll eases children into their day. Alyssa leads a meeting and song/story time before guiding interested participants through an art or dramatic play activity. Then Huckleberry children leave the Play Garden and walk to the nearby playground and large field at Dougall Park. The walk is an opportunity to transition from one social setting to the next, identify and comment upon aspects of the weather, season, and neighbourhood, and to anticipate snack time! We sing, tell stories and assume character roles as the explorations unfold. The class plays active games around the site until parent pick-up at 12 noon.
