Outdoor Learning Program For Aboriginal Head Start Children and their Families

This webinar walks viewers through the “Take it Outside” project which was piloted at Under One Sky, the Aboriginal Head Start centre for off-reserve Aboriginal pre-school aged children in the greater Fredericton area from 2014-2016. This successful project is now a core part of the Head Start program for 2 to 4 year olds. Children do their learning in an outdoor natural space year round. There is a strong emphasis on promoting health and wellbeing in a holistic sense, along with a focus on teaching language and culture through engagement with the natural world “where our roots were once firm and deep.”
