Membership Renewal Update
Thanks to all our families who have renewed their memberships! Your support is greatly appreciated. If you have not yet renewed your membership, you still can do so. The next time you drop in, just bring cash, a cheque, or a credit card with you. Annual memberships are $45 for the year (which breaks down to only 86 cents per week!) and expire at the end of April 2016.
Scotiabank Charity Challenge: Another way to support the Family Centre
Many of the staff and board members are walking to raise money for our beloved Family Centre. The additional funding we receive can be used for more parent education programs or for improvements to our facility. You know how important these things are for families with young children, so please click the image above and then press the red Donate Now button to make your generous donation!
Would you like to join our team to walk and raise money with us? You can! Click the image above, then scroll down a bit and click the link to "View Team Page". Once you are there, you can click the red button to Join The Team. It costs about $60 to register and join the team and each member commits to raising at least $100. Thank you for your support!
And now, on to June...
June 17, Wednesday: Both Morning & Afternoon Drop-Ins Graduation Day This is the day we celebrate all the children who will be attending kindergarten in the fall! We hold a ceremony outside in the grass and each "graduate" is recognized. The drop-in will still be open to the public, but play time will be shorter. There will be many people attending and more time for sitting still. This might not be the best day for families with very small children to attend. If you have a child entering kindergarten who regularly comes to the Family Centre, please check with Maria or Ewa to find out more details.
June 19, Friday: 9:30 - 11:30 AM Dads Drop-In All Dads, Uncles, and Grandpas are welcome on this special Friday morning to bring their kids and make connections! Refreshments provided!
June 26, Friday: 9:30 - 11:30 AM Family Daycare Morning Family daycare providers are welcome to bring their kids for a special morning of playtime just for them! Please sign up in advance with Ewa or Maria.
June 30, Tuesday: 10:00 - 1 PM Canada Day Celebration Please come for a fun morning of Canada Day activities! There will be crafts, face painting, cow milking demonstrations from BC Dairies, a parade, singing the national anthem, and more! We will be selling hot dogs, so bring a bit of money to spend, too! The regular drop-in will be closed for this event.
Looking Ahead to July...
July 3 - August 14, Fridays: 9:30 - 11:30 AM Making Sense of Preschoolers Gordon Neufeld provides insight into their shyness, separation anxieties, aggression, resistance, oppositionality and more.
Making sense of these confusing yet wonderous creatures lays the foundation for intuitive and fruitful interaction with them. Flora will facilitate the course which runs six Friday mornings.
