Session Location:
River Bend Golf and Recreation Area 3800 River Bend Drive, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

The environment as the third teacher is a critical piece of early learning classrooms. Over time we collect, we hoard, and we struggle to figure out what we need and where to start purging. Come explore where to start revamping your classroom space, what to do with materials you don’t need, and how to repurpose other materials to make them useful again.
