Welcome to Learning Together! Learning Together is a free, early years education program at Elijah Smith Elementary School. The program is intended for children aged 3-5, but all children aged 0-5 may join. Children will have the opportunity to learn and discover through play in a school environment. Caregivers participate alongside their children, and use play to learn about their child/ren, support learning, support language and communication skills, learn about regulation skills, and foster healthy relationships. Parent-participation is expected for the entire duration of the program.
Learning Together is a free drop-in program open to everyone, however due to COVID-19 we have had to implement social distancing protocols. We have also had to limit the amount of spaces available each day, and are asking parents to register with only their children. Please register with 1 adult per family please.
