Youngsters learns about Water Smart program at Qualicum First Nation family centre

The Regional District of Nanaimo's team water smart made a presentation to the kids, aged 30 months to five years old

Qualicum First Nation daycare kids were treated to a fun day on Friday.

The Regional District of Nanaimo’s team water smart made a presentation to the kids, aged 30 months to five years old.

And according to QFN chief Michael Recalma, it was a first for the child care centre nestled in the middle of the reserve.

RDN drinking water and watershed protection co ordinator Julie Pisani said the presentation is generally given to primary school aged kids, but the team geared it towards preschool students for this special occasion.

“We teach them about the water cycle,” said Pisani. “We ask them why water is important and we talk about our connection to water.”

Pisani said the education component of team water smart is very important and they make presentations by request at various schools in the district. Donna Hodgson, who manages Qualicum First Nation Child and Family Centre, said the presentation was fantastic and the kids really enjoyed learning about water and its impact on our daily lives.
