Dear Families,   

Welcome to February!  Please find attached our program calendar with our upcoming activities. This month we can look forward to Valentines Day (chocolate) and Family Day Weekend!  We have provided some great tip sheets from the Nobody's Perfect  Parenting Program.  They touch on a number of topics - from child development, child guidance, Fathering, parent-self care, and ways to keep your children busy at home

Family Day will be quite different this year, so we hope this information will be helpful for the coming weeks.


Remember to get out and stretch your legs each day. Play in the snow, yard or park...  go tobogganing, skate and stay safe! 
There is no such thing as bad weather if you are dressed warm and cozy!


Our daily live Circle Time & Drop In  is available Monday to Saturday  at 10:30 a.m. The program has one unique ID (the same Zoom link)... Our zoom Id: 968 2666 6548 password:421023.

Please see our program calendar for more details!
