The Vancouver Society of Children’s Centres (VSOCC) and Projects in Place Society (PiPS) are excited to partner in greatly improving five playgrounds in downtown Vancouver. In May, the VSOCC Library Square daycare which will be rehabilitated to incorporate concepts of sustainability, food security and environmental conservation with play and storytelling.
“We are excited to work with VSOCC, as they have been an active community organization for almost 20 years,” remarks Alex Taylor, PiPS Board Member. “They recognize that children and families are healthy and resilient when they are actively connected to and positively engaged in their community.”
Volunteers can sign up to help the Library Square Children’s Centre build projects at projectsinplace.org. “Volunteers will be part of this important legacy of creating high quality early learning environments,” notes Heather Stuart, one of two project leaders for the Library Square project.
“These places help to introduce children to concepts like sustainability, agriculture, and environmental conservation but we’re doing it by providing innovative and engaging environments so that sustainability teaching is being incorporated in both passive and active ways.”
