The Clubhouse Child Care Center has partnered with the Regional District of the Central Okanagan to run Treehouse Forest Preschool at Woodhaven Regional Park.
In this three week placement you have an opportunity to participate in daily practice alongside lead educator Melissa Ivec. You will experience different ways of guiding early learners during a typical half day program, and ultimately design and implement fun and engaging activity linked to the BC Early Learning Framework.
