Many people have started asking us, "Are you having a spring clothing swap?" The answer is, we would like to but we really need lots of volunteers to help out and make it happen. The staff help out a lot, but the three of us need some helping hands.
If we hold the Swap, the dates we are looking at would be either Sunday April 26th or Sunday May 3rd.
We are looking for 7-8 volunteers to help out for a few hours in the afternoon/evening the Thursday before the swap to help sort all the clothing.
We are looking for 5-6 volunteers to help out on the day of the clothing swap. The swap runs from 9:30am - 12:00pm.
We are looking for a few volunteers to take the remaining clothing to any shelters that will accept the clothing or to Talize the day after the swap.
Can you spare a couple of hours to commit to helping out? Do you know a student who is respectful and responsible who could help out and earn some of their volunteer hours? What if you and a friend came together and had a visit, a coffee and helped out all at the same time?
We know it is so hard to commit when you have young children which is why we are asking the community in general for a bit of volunteer support. Please feel free to share this as well.
Please call 705-932-7088 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to volunteer.
In the spring of 2018, The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child
and Family Centre went through a transformation.We began offering more programs and services
to families in the community and beyond in ways that we hope have been responsive
to your unique needs as a family. Continual efforts to build trusting
relationships with families and the community we are part of have allowed us to
learn what families enjoyed about the Child and Family Centre and where there
was room for us to grow and set goals.
We wanted to share what goals we will be focusing on for 2020.
Diversity and Inclusivity; We
will continue our work to ensure all families feel like they are represented in
our programs and the materials we utilize to create a welcoming quality
learning environment.Our programs are
for everyone to enjoy and we want to decrease barriers and increase
opportunities for children and families to thrive.
Experiences and Play; We
have a passion for outdoor play and recognize the immense benefits of it to
child development.To quote Richard Louv
from his book, “Last Child in the Woods”, We have such a brief opportunity
to pass on to our children our love for this Earth, and to tell our stories.
These are the moments when the world is made whole. In my children's memories,
the adventures we've had together in nature will always exist.”
our Self-Reg Journey;
Self-Reg is an ongoing journey that we are excited to be on and are looking
forward to continuing to offer opportunities for more learning for all of
us.“There is no such thing as a bad
child”, Dr. Stuart Shanker.We will
continue to work together to start or to continue to ask, “Why?” and “Why now?”
Thank you for working with The Old Millbrook School EarlyON
Child and Family Centre Educator Team to create quality programs.
If you have any questions at all, please let us know. We always
appreciate your feedback and insight.
