Born Learning Trail

Born Learning is an innovative public engagement campaign that helps parents, caregivers and communities create quality early learning opportunities for young children. A born learning trail contains 10 interactive signs with activities for adults to engage in with young children to turn an outdoor trip into a fun learning experience.

The Opportunity

United Way is lookin for community partners to help install 10 new trails throughout the community.

Working on the Born Learning Trail was certainly a team effort. Looking back, it was amazing to see how much effort and pride went into the planning and building of the trail. It gave us all satisfaction to know that we helped make Heyer Park an even more unique playground environment for young children to grow, learn and interact with their caregivers.
