September 2017 Newsletter


September in the Playroom

This summer the playroom had the pleasure of having Maryam as our summer student. She has been a welcomed addition to the playroom. Her boundless energy and enthusiasm has helped to engage and make connections with the children. Playful in nature, Maryam has smoothly integrated herself into the routine and lives of the children and families. She will be missed. We wish her luck in her future studies.


Music Circle

On Mondays at 11:30 a music therapist comes and leads parents and children in a ½ hour of singing and stories. Children learn songs, do a little dancing and make a lot of wonderful noise.


Wiggle, Giggle and Munch

Wednesday mornings from 10 – 12 we have Wiggle, Giggle & Munch for children who are into movement. The morning includes physical activities, a craft, circle time and a nutritious snack. September dates are the 20th and 27th.  All our programs are run on a drop-in basis. You do not have to pre-register. Just come on the days that work for you and your family. For more information, call us at 204-788-8055.


Nobody’s perfect

Wednesday afternoons 1:30 – 3:00

September 20th-October 18th

As a parent it’s good to remember that you don’t have to be perfect. Your child is not perfect and neither is the person in the grocery store watching you parent in a difficult moment. This is a parenting support program for parents of pre-school aged children. Parents can learn from each other while exploring together about the development of children, how to influence their behavior and the importance of taking care of their bodies and minds. Parents can register by calling 788-8055 and leaving their name and phone number. Child care is available if you let them know at the time of registration.
