Week 1 is community week!
Visit from the fire Dept
Visit from the police and a field trip to city hall to learn all about what they do for us and our community .
Lots of arts and crafts, water games and free play time too!

Our senses come alive as we begin to explore what is possible through sensory exploration. Fernie Mountain Mamas understand the importance of exposing their children to new environments to increase their potential for progress. Adina Koran is one such Mama.

It is hard to walk around our community for even a brief amount of time and not be aware that there are community builders all around us, leaning in and supporting whatever they are passionate about.
