Hello Everyone,

I regret to inform you that there will not be an outing this week due to a scheduled board meeting. The outing will still occur but will be postponed to a later week.

Instead, our program will consist of making Minions, playing outside if the weather is nice (if not an indoor obstacle course will be the replacement) and swimming.

Please assure that all swimming essentials are pack for Saturday as well as appreciate gear for the weather (ex: sunscreen and cooler clothing).

Have a wonderful week!

Thank you ,

Hello Everyone,

Our theme this week for program is Bright Colours and Glow in the dark.

Our afternoon will be filled with Glow Tic Tac Toe, Glow Bowling, Glow Ring Toss, a Glow Dance and swimming.

Please pack all swimming essentials and feel free to dress up in bright colours. You can bring in your own glow sticks but this is not mandatory, as we’ll have lots at program.

*If you have any fun lighting that we could use for the day, please feel free to bring them in(if they require batteries, let Danielle know before Saturday)

Have a wonderful rest of your week!

Hi Everyone,

We are back at the Bob MacQuarrie Centre for our new start time of 12:30 pm. Please note that pick up time has also changed and will be at 3:30 pm.

Our Program schedule will include making colour spinners, playing a variety of games, as well as some mad science. For this activity, we are creating our very own bouncy balls.

THANK YOU to Kevin and his family for such a yummy snack!

Hello Everyone,

As some of you might know, Jessica (Program Coordinator) is going to be absent for the month of June. I (Danielle-Assistant Program coordinator) will be taking over the role for the month with the help of Samiha as Assistant Program Coordinator.

This week, we will be having fun “Under the Sea”. We will be making a Jelly Fish as the craft and will have fun with an ocean themed sensory activity. If the weather is nice, we might spend some time outside, so please bring a hat, sunscreen, jacket, etc.

Please pack your swimming attire as we are plan on going to the pool.

Also, if all families can take a few minutes to complete this year-end survey, it would be greatly appreciated. You’ll find the link to the survey in the email communiqué you should have received on May 31. Let me know if you lost the link and I’ll resend it!

Have a wonderful week and see you on Saturday!
