Motoring Munchkins
Motoring MunchkinsThe Town of Banff facilitates a school-year program for children aged 1-3 years on Saturday mornings from 10-11:30 a.m. This popular program runs at the Banff Elementary School from October until April annually. For a $2 drop in fee per child your little ones can meet friends, play unstructured games and ‘motor’ about in the gymnasium.

Playing is one of the most important things you can do with your child. The time you spend playing together gives your child lots of different ways and times to learn. It also helps your child:
  • Build confidence
  • Feel loved, happy and safe
  • Develop social skills, language and communication
  • Learn about caring for others and the environment
  • Develop physical skills
  • Connect and refine pathways in their brain

Unstructured, free play is the best type of play for young children. This is play that just happens, depending on what takes your child’s interest at the time. Free play isn't planned and lets your child use their imagination and move at their own pace.

Motoring Munchkins is dependent on parent volunteers to run this program. The volunteer monitor role simply opens and closes the school, prepares the equipment and check-in all children and parents. If you are interested in volunteering we would love to hear from you.
