Taking Play Outdoors!
On Thursday, August 10, the Library unveiled its first outdoor Early Learning Centre at Forest Lawn Library. This new space will help kids learn and develop foundational skills through play.
The Forest Lawn Nature Playground was made possible with the support of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program and Friends of the Library—including a group of local children from the Play N’ Learn Childcare Centre who came out to help us celebrate the opening!
Since learning happens everywhere, the playground is fully-accessible and includes large-scale letters that children can play in, under, and around, and moveable elements that support creative play and exploration.
