From 29 March to 5 April 2020, our educators at Milestones Early Learning Augustine Heights will be walking 10,000 steps per day to help change the lives of people on the autism spectrum.
Centre Manager Sharee Madden said, “The educators here at Milestones Augustine Heights have risen up as individuals and united as a team. Between the team, 100,000 steps will be walked today and for the rest of the week."
“Educators getting involved in important community matters is a terrific example for the children here at our centre. It really solidifies what we strive to teach them every day and shows them the importance of teamwork and creating a sense of belonging for all,” said Sharee.
The involvement of children in fundraising and other community activities can help children develop respect for those around them. Giving back also creates a sense of accomplishment in children for having helped people in need.
Getting the children to become more active community members is a key element of the Healthy Communities Lifelong Learning approach. We encourage children to participate in their community and understand their important role actively.
