November Early Learning Calendars

November Early Learning Calendars

Happy SNOVEMBER!  Welcome winter!  Living here for 37 years has taught me that the best way to survive winter is to keep active and stay involved.  As we transition into winter, I hope you continue to attend these amazing programs.  If you have questions or need help finding programs and activities in your neighbourhood, please call Jaimelia @ 250.794.7336 or email jturner@prn.bc.ca.

  The weather outside is frightful but the people are so delightful.

Imaginative Play

Imaginative Play

We are all getting the message that play is essential to optimal human development.  Here Vivian Gussin Paley, celebrated author of multiple books about story telling and imaginative play with young children, speaks about the essential survival skill of creating story and navigating relationships.  I found it inspirational and motivating.

“They (children) are inventing and reinventing themselves as thinking people, before the world tells them what to think.”
