Early learning is a critical part of childhood development—and it can happen anywhere, at any time. That’s why we developed United Way Born Learning Trails.
The Born Learning Trail turns everyday experiences into teachable moments. This multi-station, family-learning courses connect learning in the classroom to real-world activities around the community and out in nature. The trails support language, literacy, and social skills development and remind us that learning can be fun.
This interactive trail contains signs with instructions for simple games that will turn an excursion at the park into fun learning moments for young children. The trail’s theme of Watch! Stop! Learn! Play! Encourages parents and caregivers to follow the child’s lead, building the child’s curiosity and confidence and reinforcing learning opportunities present in everyday life.
