Join us as we explore the fun and captivating ways in which we use literacy every day! Guided by Nipissing University’s teacher education students, children will explore literacy in a variety of ways outside of the classroom. Through hands-on, authentic learning, children will see how literacy can be enjoyed through math, science, physical activity, and the good ol’ outdoors! Themed, full-day weeks will be run with both large and small group activities to ensure an age-appropriate and diverse learning experience for your child.
