This program is run in cooperation with the Stanley Park Ecology Society out of the beautiful Stanley Park in downtown Vancouver. We learn and play predominately in forested areas of the park (close to the Ecology Society), at the beach in the ocean air, and at the castle playground.


Drop-in Program

This is a parent-participation program for children ages 5 and under.   We will enjoy circle times, open-ended play in the forested and beach areas of the park, exciting materials and tools, snack/story-time, herbal teas and songs.
