Dear Families,   

Welcome, September!

Hope you are enjoying the warm weather as we begin to move into the fall months. Please join us for a variety of outdoor activities and programs, as we can continue to meet in person. The September calendar is below. 

Congratulations to all of our preschool graduates who will be entering kindergarten in September. Thanks for staying with us throughout the year and for participating in the various programs.

The summer went by rather quickly! We have attached some resources to help you prepare for school. Please see the links.

*Comfort, Play and Teach – resources for families:,-Play-Teach 
*COVID and Schools – what you need to know:

We also remind you that we are here for you until your children turn age 6, so please reach out if you are looking for extra resources, parent groups, and different child development supports.  

September 30th is Orange Shirt Day. In respect for those impacted by the 139 Indian Residential schools that operated from 1831 – 1996 across Canada, please join us in wearing an orange shirt, or piece of clothing to honour and give thanks to the ancestors of Indigenous families, and to continue learning about our country’s history.
