FREE VIRTUAL TRAINING FOR PRE-K EDUCATORS

For a limited time, we are offering this virtual training and accompanying WinterKids Preschool GOAL binder as a “pay what you can” kit. This means you can get it for free if you need it!

Sure, we know winter is over, but our Spring Forward! unit offers two full weeks of springtime activities. You’ll find plenty to keep your little ones moving AND learning with wind and rain art projects, stick math, planting seeds, mud play, worms, and more!

Register by April 30, and we will include a starter kit for an activity found in the Spring Forward! unit!

Students, Teachers, and Families Impacted in Maine & New Hampshire since 2010!

WinterKids is the only nonprofit in Maine dedicated exclusively to increasing outdoor physical activity in children and families during our longest, most sedentary season.  

The shorter, darker, and colder days of winter and the increasing allure of screen time make it all too easy for kids and families to “hibernate.”  At WinterKids, we make it our business to provide kids, parents, and teachers with the right option: to get outside, get active, and have fun in the winter – and year-round.

Outdoor kids are active kids. Active kids are healthy kids. Healthy kids are happy kids. Happy kids are “winter kids.”
