Mobile Kinder Camp

July 29, 2021


Mobile Kinder Camp Manpreet Lamsar.jpg The Countdown to Kindergarten team is excited to announce FREE, in-person outdoor programming this summer! With Mobile Kinder Camp, our facilitators visit outside your home (in the front or back yard) to lead your family in chants, stories, rhyming, phonological activities, and active games to get moving! We'll also teach a few favourite kindergarten songs to help your child get excited about starting school.   

  

Taking place outside your home, Mobile Kinder Camp appointments are available Monday to Friday from July 19–August 12. Appointments are approximately 45 minutes in length. Siblings are welcome to participate, too! Just before we leave, participants will receive a Kinder Camp activity package that will include educational activities and art experiences.  * A parent/caregiver is required to stay outside during the entire appointment to ensure their children are social distancing. Families must adhere to the current public health orders regarding gathering size restrictions. We thank you in advance for your co-operation.  

Families are welcome to book one (1) Mobile Kinder Camp Visit.

Morning: 9 am, 10:15 am or 11:30 am
