Outdoor Programming

Hello everyone! EarlyON Family Resource Connection will be offering programming at Norwood Park. Permits have been submitted however we are still waiting for approval of the application. In the meantime, we are delighted to offer socially distanced community walks at Norwood Park beginning November 23rd. We cannot wait to see everyone! We have missed you all! Because of your requests, we are happy to let you know that we will be offering walks and outdoor programming on some Saturday’s based on demand. Hopefully we will see some of you who are not able to come during the week! 

Toronto Public Health requires that participants pre-register for outdoor sessions including walks, that participants read and agree to a Code of Conduct, and that they pre-screen ahead of time. Written screening and attendance will be taken at the outdoor EarlyON site as required by Toronto Public Health. Please refer to the attachments.

Pre-Registration will be done online using Google Docs. Please complete and submit the google docs form  https://forms.gle/s8KPLJgxMroaGNFT8 and submit the form to confirm you have reviewed the screening tools and to request a space for you and the children you are planning to bring. Indicate the dates you are interested in and we will email you with a confirmation for a specific date. We may not be able to register you for more than one day per week, subject to demand and availability.

If you are having difficulty or are unable to register online, please contact Family Resource Connection at 416-690-0102 and staff will be happy to pre-register an available outdoor time slot for you over the phone.

The total number of participants in each walk or session will be set based on the ability to allow for social distancing between staff children and adults and to prevent multiple groups from mixing with one another.

Programming and walks will be designed with the needs of the group and individual children in mind. The safety of the children, families, caregivers, and staff will be of utmost priority when planning activities and play experiences. We welcome your suggestions and feedback as we plan and create safe and enriching outdoor experiences for the children and yourselves.

Thank You and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Jen, Peggy, and Lashonnia
