The walk will follow city sidewalks.
We will meet at Bettye Hyde Co-op Early Learning Centre for a reading of the book Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson. We will then take a short walk through the neighbourhood to look at some of the trees and hear what our preschoolers had to say about them. This will be a tour of our neighbourhood through the eyes of the children who live in it.
Note: Children must be accompanied by an adult.
We'll walk two blocks south on Blackburn, then one block east on Templeton, one block north on Goulburn, one block west on Somerset, and one block north on Blackburn back to our starting point.
Getting young children involved in caring for their community as well as for the environment is very important to all the educators at Bettye Hyde Co-op. Janet is a registered early childhood educator who has worked at Bettye Hyde Co-op Early Learning Centre for the past 15 years.
