Wee Care Child Center Newsletter
Thank you very much to all of the families that donated items/baking to our Terry Fox Fundraiser that was held on September 15th. Despite the terrible weather that day we made $400.00, and all of that will be donated to the Terry Fox Foundation for Cancer Research!
It seems crazy, but time of year has come again for the Wee Care Child Center Wine Raffle Fundraiser. This is the one fundraiser that we do all year, so we rely on support from our daycare families. We kindly ask each family donate one bottle of wine to the raffle and sell at least one book of tickets, or donate $50.00. Wine bottles can be brought to the kitchen at the main center, or given to a staff member at the school age location. We would like bottles to be in by Oct. 20th so have sufficient time to get ticket books printed.
Last year we had 93 bottles of wine donated and made a profit of $5,500 in ticket sales from the raffle! The profits went towards playground renovations at the main center, and new furniture at the school age center. This year we are hoping to make enough money to cover the cost of new lockers in both the preschool and toddler locker rooms.
On Sept. 20th the preschool room put on a Grandparents Tea. The children sang a special song, recited a poem, and listened to a story from one of our own daycare children’s grandma. Then they had a yummy snack and enjoyed a visit. Thank you so much to all the grandparents that came out. The children were so excited to have you come join us!
We have two new staff at our school age program this year. Rachel Ort and Hope S. We have very excited to have them join our team!
We have had several requests from parents in the preschool room about what group their children are in. The groups are listed below.
** Please not that there may be days when you child may be changed to a different group due to high/low attendance. Thank you for your co-operation, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
