Elspeth Reid Family Resource Centre
Where community meets children & families
Happy New Year to you and your family! December was an active month at our Centre while we wrapped up Fall programs and did our Christmas support to families.
Once again it was our pleasure to receive community donations of food and gifts to share with our families. Our staff worked very hard to compile parcels for 55 different families and this was deeply appreciated by parents. Santa came by for a visit and many families enjoyed a chance to talk with this jolly fella and we captured some very special photos. Our calendar of Winter programs has been emailed out and it can be found on our website. Feel free to pop in for a copy as well. Rest assured all safety measures are in place as we continue efforts to support the community by strengthening families.
All the best to Brenda Lacerte as she retires from her Volunteer Coordinator position and remains with us as a half time Facilitator. Congratulations to Shawna as she takes on the Volunteer Coordinator position while remaining in her ParentChild+ position. We enter into this New Year wishing you good health, much love and memory making moments with your precious children. Please always know we are here to help.
Child Care at Elspeth Reid Family Resource Centre
Our winter programming has started and we are happy to see many new and returning families to the centre. We are continuing to follow public health orders to ensure our space is safe and healthy. Child care staff have been working diligently to ensure our environment is inviting and children have the opportunity to learn and explore through play. We are fortunate enough to have received a new van for transporting and that has contributed immensely to the amount of people we are able to accommodate. We are looking forward to the New Year and continuing to support our families through these difficult times.
Victoria Day Care Centre
Victoria Day Care Centre has been able to continue programming throughout all of 2021 with the cooperation of our families who are keeping sick children at home. It has been wonderful for the children to be able to immerse themselves in their play, and continue to learn, grow and nurture friendships in a safe place. We look forward to the time when we can welcome parents back into our building, but until then it is still an inviting place for their children.
