Métis Early Learning Family Social
July 24, 2021


Métis early learners and their families can tap into their creativity during the next MNO Early Learning Family Social on July 24, 2021. Held each month, this month’s theme will be crafting! The registration for this family social runs until July 9.

Like previous socials, these online events are available for Métis early learners between the ages of zero (0) years and twelve (12) years and their families. Going forward, each family social will focus on a different theme as the children participate in hands-on play-based cultural activities in a safe and engaging manner.

The Family Socials will run once a month on a Saturday, with three (3) time slots per Social to choose from: 10:00am -12:00pm (EST), 1:00pm-3:00pm (EST), and 4:00pm-6:00pm (EST)

Families will be able to register for one (1) time slot per Social.

Registration period runs until July 9, 2021
