Help us build our Forest Playground! 

Learning through nature is at the core of the Kamloops Child Development Centre – and our amazingly big yard is a key component, our own natural classroom for our children to play and learn. Today we are inviting you to help us continue building this forest playground that will feature an elevated creek bed, accessible treehouse, mud kitchens, grassy areas for creative play and art projects as well as mother nature’s own slides and puddles.

For as little as $5, you can help us create our natural wonderland, one that will be accessible and that, except during extreme weather, will see our children and teachers outside discovering learning can be fun. For those who can spare more, in keeping with our focus on nature, a $20 donation will net you a package of seeds to add to your own natural environment. For donations of $100, we’ll add some original artwork by our children along with the package of seeds.

Yes, we’d love to give you more for your support but we think you’d agree our money is best spent creating this playground classroom for our children, many of whom have special needs or come from low-income families.

If you’d like to visit our centre and drop off your donation in person, you’re your cheque out to Kamloops Child Development and indicate it’s for the Forest Playground. You’ll find us at 157 Holway Street, Kamloops, BC V2B 4A3. We will be issuing tax donation receipts for all donations over $20.
