Urban Indigenous EarlyON ~ Daily “Virtual” Activities for the Kiddies!! Check it out :)
We’re an early years family program rooted in Indigenous knowledge, language, and culture!
Join Us “Virtually” On Facebook Throughout February!
⇒ February is Black History Month; Did you know Canada recognized Black History Month every year? Every day for the month of February, we will be sharing knowledge, stories, videos, and articles on the history of Black people in Canada.
⇒ The Urban Indigenous EarlyON team will also be talking about all types of Healthy Love throughout the month of February, starting off with… AUNTIE LOVE What does Auntie Love mean to you? What does Auntie Love look like?
⇒ #ifckidskitchen – Every Wednesday for the next few weeks the Urban Indigenous EarlyOn team we will be highlighting a different healthy food, the Anishinaabemowin word(s) associated with the food, tips for shopping for that food and its nutritional value! The goal is to get our kids in the kitchen to build up their own cooking skills and knowledge. This is an amazing opportunity to introduce healthy food to our children in a way that promotes positive interactions between kids and their caregivers. At the end of our #IFCKIDSKITCHEN, we will host a Nutrition Jeopardy game via Zoom. Entry must be earned through participation in the weekly activities.
