We are soooo excited to announce our First Annual Protectors of Play Fun Walk in Edmonton, AB! We are putting on our walking shoes, gathering our team, family and friends and walking 5km (you can walk, run, dance, shimmy and shake….whatever works for you) for a great cause. Inspired Minds ECC is proud to support Kids Kottage Foundation as sour charity of choice! This is a great chance to not only connect with your team, but also with other early childhood educators, their families and friends and a chance to give back to the community. Whether you are joining us in-person or virtually, we are here to welcome you to our team as Protectors of Play!!
