Music & Movement

The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre and Centennial Place have launched another year of Music and Movement for families and Centennial Place residents. 

This program is a joint venture between Centennial Place and The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre.  

The program includes songs, dances, instruments and fun that will get both young and old moving to the music and enjoying each other’s smiling faces. Snack is provided.  

** Please note: Parents are reminded to keep sick children at home for the health of our friends at Centennial Place - thank you.

Where:  Fireside Lounge at Centennial Place

When:  Every Monday from 10:00am - 11:00am (Closed for Mondays of Long Weekends)

Drop-in Gym

Get ready to work up a sweat (or at least have a lot of fun) being active and busy at the Family Centre's free drop-in gym program.  This runs the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month from 9:30 til' 11:30 and takes place upstairs at the Old School, in the Dorothy Stevens Room on the 3rd Floor. 

Lots of fun gym equipment is put out, including balls, balance boards, tunnels, plasma cars and more.  Physical activity is so important for growing little bodies and most children in Canada do not get enough exercise each day. Please stay for snack after, downstairs in the Family Centre.

Thanks to the Township of Cavan Monaghan for donating the use of the Dorothy Stevens room for this important program!

 “Sensory Sensitive” Fridays are offered on the third Friday of each month.  This Drop-In day is available to families with children who have unique sensory processing needs in order to allow for a safe and inclusive play environment.

Walk and Wear Musical March

Please join us every Wednesday from 10:00am - 11:00am for six weeks beginning Wednesday January 29th at The Cavan Monaghan Community Centre.  It is located at 986 County Road 10, Millbrook, ON.
 
Families are invited to bring their infants and children, walk the track in the new Community Centre and maybe make some music and new friends along the way. Adults are asked to either wear their infants or ensure that if strollers have to be used, the wheels are clean and dry. This is to maintain the good condition of the walking track. 
 
Outdoor shoes can remain at the door upon arrival and families can change into clean, dry indoor shoes. Small musical instruments will be available to enjoy as well as music provided by staff. 
 
Please note that food and drinks cannot be brought onto the walking track. Children must be with the adults they came with at all times. 
 
There may be hockey practices and games happening at the same time, so please ensure that children refrain from hitting or banging on the barriers to the rink. 
 
Thank you to The Cavan Monaghan Township for their partnership to make this program a reality. 
 
If you have any questions or need more information, please call 705-932-7088 or email omsfc@nexicom.net 
 
See you there
