EarlyON Waterloo Region is excited to be part of Bestival this year! Come visit us at the “loose parts” tent in the Children's Area. What are “loose parts” you wonder? “Loose parts are natural objects or materials which provide children with endless opportunities to build on their play”. Children learn through play and are encouraged to explore materials that support creativity, problem solving and mathematical behaviours. At EarlyON, our early learning environments are set up for open-ended exploration that supports these growing skills which are foundational for literacy and instill a love of learning. We are bringing this play opportunity to Bestival this year, we invite families to stop by and play with us!
