Advocates for Early Childhood Education
The inaugural issue of Play Outdoors Magazine…Exploring Outdoor Experiences in the Early Years is being launched in March 2021. This publication is devoted to bringing articles, inspiration and creative ideas to those who play a key role in shaping the first five years of a child's life! Nature play, water play and outdoor fun greatly impact early childhood education and the health of our children. It is so important that we recognize the significance of outdoor play on child development and encourage families to spend more time outside!

We firmly believe that early childhood education is strengthened from engaging nature play, outdoor play and water play.
Join Mavis Lewis-Webber, a forest school facilitator and early learning educator from Manitoba as she shares her knowledge and ideas of how to enhance children's learning on the land. Children are naturally curious as they explore, play and learn from the land. Mavis will discuss the role of the educator in enhancing this learning experience for children.
