BKC Healthy Beginnings 2019 Fieldtrips!

Create Healthy Beginnings with... Field trips at Buddings! This season, we have a diverse set of adventures that we are excited to share with all the Big Kids of Buddings!

Our field trips for our Healthy Beginnings season will run from 1 - 4 pm,

with a few noted exceptions running 1 - 5pm at BOTH locations.

Read below for the field trip schedule and checklist!


Toques, Gloves, and Scarves: It's always a good idea to keep these items in our back pack just in case it gets too cold outside to expose our bare fingers, neck, and head!

Coats: Please remember your coats for the field trip as many of our adventures involve braving the cold and wet Vancouver weather!

Appropriate shoes: We are still in Vancouver after all, and we will never know when Mr. cloud and rain will show themselves. Please bring your rain boots for those super tempting mud puddles!

Permission Form: When there is a field trip for the day, you will find a permission form next to the Sign In/Out Sheet. Please remember to write your child's name on the space provided, and provide your signature on the right hand side... the Buddings teachers will be there to remind you. 🙂
