January StrongStart and Rotary Play Centre calendars

January StrongStart and Rotary Play Centre calendars

The transition from December to January always feels weird.  We have to start getting ready for January so early.  Although having a break from the everyday is welcome, the rush up to the holiday can be overwhelming and tiring.  I hope your family gets some quiet time to enjoy each other’s company, to read, sing, pretend and cuddle.  We’ll see you in January.

StrongStart renovations

StrongStart renovations

 

In August, volunteers from Progress Energy came into both Fort St. John StrongStarts to help us renovate.  For those of you who have been to StrongStart, you will notice changes to the colours and the atmosphere in both centres.  Please come see us and speak with Pam and Lana about the new look.

May StrongStart calendars

May StrongStart calendars

Usually it is April when we see a resurgence of families at StrongStart due to the milder weather.  Although we are still getting a healthy number of families attending, we are still waiting for the spring rush.  Hopefully May brings us some sunny days and above zero temperatures.  Ha!  Hope to see you soon!

March Early Learning calendars

March Early Learning calendars

March is coming in like a lamb. I hope the beautiful weather gets lots of families out of the house.  Winter can feel so long here.  But there are many wonderful people at StrongStart and the Rotary Play Centre waiting to cheer you.  The easiest way to get through the winter season with small kids is get outside.  The 2nd best way is to come to our play based, parent participation learning centres.

StrongStart programs don’t run during the school spring break March 18 – April 1.  Rotary Play Centre, though, is only closing from March 25 – April 1.  If you haven’t visited the CDC centre, March 18th – 22nd might be a good week to give it a try.
