Message from the Director 

Our Graduation ceremony takes place on Saturday, June 24 in the Church hall. Please make a note of your child’s class time. It will be a pot-luck affair of light snacks and refreshments. Feel free to extend the invitation to grandparents! Sign-up sheets have been posted in the hallway; we will need to know how many people are attending, and what you plan to bring to the pot luck table. Click here to learn more...

Be sure to hand in your child’s registration package if you are planning on re-enrolling for fall. Some classes are full already. Once we receive the paperwork and deposit, your child’s space for next year is confirmed. Your last month fee deposit should be dated for June 1st, 2017.

Health matters FYI

No Wrong Door
Child Care operators that have a purchase of service agreement with the Regional Municipality of Durham are required to ensure staff, students and board members are aware of No Wrong Door. No Wrong Door is a green binder that should be located in all child care offices in Durham. The purpose of No Wrong Door is to make it easier for families living in Durham Region to connect with the services they want for their children ages birth to 13th birthday. No Wrong Door is also available electronically at .

EpiPen Auto-Injector Training Kit
An EpiPen Auto-Injector Training Kit is available for loan at the nursery school. It is designed to educate people with severe allergies about anaphylaxis, and to assist you in being better prepared in the event of an anaphylactic reaction. If you are interested in borrowing the kit, please ask any member of our staff. If you would like to order your own complimentary kit, visit

Asthma Action Resource Kit
Also available for loan is an Asthma Action Resource Kit. It is an excellent resource for educators and parents looking after a child with asthma. It includes two story books that you can read to your child. It is developed by the Lung Association. The Asthma Action Helpline is 1-800-668-7682, where Certified Asthma Educators are available to provide education and counselling about prevention, management and treatment of asthma.

We have children in our programs with life threatening allergies to NUTS AND EGGS. At no time is it allowable for these foods to be brought to school. If your child has consumed or come into contact with any of the above allergens (i.e. peanut butter), it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to ensure that you have cleaned these products off your child’s face, hands, and clothing. The families of these children deserve assurance that their children will be safe at nursery school. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
