March Early Learning calendars

March Early Learning calendars

It is difficult to fathom that March is already here. Usually March is a shorter month for our programs, but this month we get four full weeks before the spring break.  It’s a dinosaur theme for StrongStart and an Easter theme on the WOW Bus.  Please come play with us.

CCRR – Nov & Dec Newsletter

CCRR – Nov & Dec Newsletter

Until recently, I was not aware of the CCRR, the Child Care Resource and Referral centre.  I had heard the letters mentioned but didn’t know what they meant.   Heather and Moya at the CCRR center are an amazing team who care so much about little people and have already taught me a great deal about what is available in our own community.  I’ve attached their November newsletter.  Enjoy!
