parents and children building a canned food castle
The Early Childhood Education Centre (ECEC) participated in the second annual University CanBuild project to collect food items for donation to the food bank. The youngsters (2 ½ to 5 years of age) built a castle they called “The Good Castle” with the help of their parents and teachers. 

castle created from canned food

They demonstrated caring for others who do not have enough food, created patterns with the cans, worked as a team to create something big and counted how many cans they collected.  Impressive work for preschoolers!
