Contacting Folks on Waitlist for January 23

If you’ve added your name, please keep your eyes peeled for an email from us!

Connecting children with the natural environment

Muddy Boot Prints strives to connect children with the natural environment…. in the middle of a bustling city. Vancouver is a diverse city in both it’s culture and it’s landscapes. It is a host to a wide variety of parks that offer a never ending change in landscape and exploration opportunities. Multiple programs are located throughout Vancouver between MacDonald St and Renfrew St. Muddy Boot Prints is an outdoor early learning program offering classes for 2.5- 6 yr olds, 4 days a week in both the morning (east and west) and afternoon (east side only).

If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
