Connect The Dots is a unique place as there is none like it in Northern Ontario! It is a nature-based play centre that offers educational drop-in play and programs for children 0-10 years old. We are aiming to create a community centre to bring locals together. Future plans include an “Up-cycling centre”and a Forest School Retreat Centre. We currently are working with Forest School Canada to run 2 Forest School programs for school aged children.
Connect The Dots offers families a place to get to know others for support, all while offering fun educational activities for parents AND for children! Valued programs focusing on mindfulness will be developed in order to meet the needs of the groups attending. Programs will use inspired ideas from Waldorf, Montessori and Reggio Emilia theories. Connect The Dots offers an indoor educational and environmentally aware place space with various activity stations. Connect The Dots offers social events out in the community including a Big Boreal Adventure as a celebration at the end of each program.
Connect The Dots is dedicated to to teaching all who enter about the importance of mindfulness and community. Connect The Dots will help to instill a life-long love of learning by nurturing the real-world skills children need to become engaged citizens in the future.

- Early learning is the foundation for lifelong learning.
- Mindfulness and Community.
- The importance of connecting to the earth.
- The importance of loving our natural environment.
- Families are our children’s first teachers.
