Discovery Early Learning & Care is a licensed early learning and child care program serving children in the City of Greater Sudbury. Our dream is to renovate the outdoor playscapes at each of our four locations.
We know that outdoor environments are so important to the well-being of the children and our educators. Connecting to nature and honouring the land we play on deepens our appreciation for our planet. Our youngest citizens will carry this thinking of preserving and respecting our environment so that future generations will have opportunity to make the same connections.
We believe that children learn through play and building relationships to the outdoor environment deepens their learning. Just take a moment and remember your favourite activity as a child. Was it outdoors? It probably was.
Research speaks of the need for children to "get outside", connect with nature, explore the environments and get our bodies moving in big outdoor spaces.
Our hope is to add to our existing spaces with trees, bushes, gardens and natural materials and equipment.
