Belluz Trip!

Good afternoon Mahmowenchike families,

On Wednesday, October 25th, 2017, we will be travelling to Belluz Farms to take part in their Farm Life Programming. We will be on the farm from 9:30 AM to 11:15 PM. We ask that children please be dropped off at the centre no later than 8:15 AM, regardless of approved hours, to ensure they are on time for the bus ride out to the farm. As all staff from both sites are attending the outing, the centres will be without supervision and unable to receive children on this day after 8:30 AM.

We ask that children please dress appropriately for the weather: mitts, winter hat, winter jacket, boots, and so on. Children not dressed properly will be asked to stay home.

A permission form is being sent home today and must be returned to the centre by Monday, October 23rd, 2017.

Executive Director


Just a reminder that both of our sites will be closed on Thursday, October 5th, 2017 for staff to attend a professional development workshop. We will be open regular hours on Friday, October 6th, 2017, and closed again on Monday, October 9th, 2017 for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding!
