Description

Danforth-East York Healthy Kids Community Challenge (HKCC) will provide free Staff Training Opportunity for community agency staff, grassroots community group members , peer leaders.

HKCC Training Brief:

Learn how you can create opportunities for children and families to power off and play!

Outdoor play has been disappearing from childhood for decades, and a movement is emerging in Canada to bring it back.

Outdoor self-directed, open-ended free play is one of the best ways to connect children to their environments and community; to nurture their ingenuity, independence and sense of agency; to facilitate inclusion, and; to support their mental and physical well-being.

Healthy Kids Community Challenge Danforth-East York is working with Earth Day Canada to train staff in playwork principles to re-frame the risks and benefits of play, and to create curated spaces with loose parts (natural and upcycled materials) that support open-ended outdoor play experiences for children and youth.

Space are limited and open only for Danforth-East York community agency staff and grassroots community group members, peers leaders. Please register online through the Eventbrite.

This is a Full day training on April 27th , 2018 at 1245 Danforth Ave, unit #3.
