BORN LEARNING TRAIL
BORN LEARNING TRAIL AT WESTSIDE PARK, YANKTON, SD!
A partnership with the City of Yankton, United Way of Greater Yankton and Yankton Area Arts has HELPED ALL KIDS REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL through the installation of Yankton’s first ever Born Learning Trail at Westside Park!
From the moment they are born, children are constantly learning. What they learn during their early years depends on the experiences they have every day – and has a strong influence on academic success. We also know increased investment in pre-K development fosters healthy growth, decreasing the likelihood of children being affected by various other adversities later on in life.
United Way’s Born Learning Trail offers valuable resources for early childhood learning and building kindergarten readiness!
The fun, physical learning activities are designed for parents and/or caregivers to play with 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 reinforces learning opportunities present in everyday life.
This interactive trail, located at Westside Park in Yankton, contains 10 signs, both in english and spanish, with instructions for simple games that will turn an excursion at the park into fun learning moments for young children.
All art installed throughout the Born Learning Trail was thanks to Yankton Area Arts and Connecting Artists.
