Carp Ridge Learning Centre had the opportunity to spend the day with the the television and filming crew of ‘CBC The National’ a few weeks back, and a story aired on March 7th about Environmental Education in Canada, which highlighted CRLC’s Forest Preschool.

The crew spent the day on site, experiencing the ridge and the cold winter weather, while following around five preschooler’s as they meandered and explored the wooded areas.

We are hoping this exposure willl increase the credibility and importance of this work, and will highlight the many educational and health benefits of sustainable and outdoor education. You can view the video that aired by visiting our homepage at: www.carpridgelearningcentre.ca
