Without doubt, this particular place of Terra Nova Rural Park in Richmond, BC, is a beautiful place to explore. What I notice when looking at photographs from this week, though, is the sense that we are coming together as a community. The children are learning one another’s names and using them more often; routines and landmarks are familiar; children are comfortable asking teachers and volunteers for assistance. We are starting to shift from ‘newness’ to ‘knowing’, and that sense of trust shows up in the way the children are engaging with each other and this environment. Despite heavy rains, and the inevitable exhaustion that follows Halloween excitement, we had so many lovely moments together. Enjoy!
