Parents Attending Assiniboine
Finding reliable and quality daycare for your children is a major challenge faced by parents attending college. It is necessary to have both a regular babysitter or daycare centre for your pre-schooler and a backup plan for days when the regular services may be unavailable. It may be necessary to have morning, noon or after school care for your school-aged child, and a backup plan for in-service days. To get the best available care for your children, we recommend making arrangements early.

Fun’ding the Future
Assiniboine Early Learning Centre is fundraising for a nature-based playground through a monthly online 50/50. The playground will be suitable for all age groups, including infants (3 months - 2 years) and preschool-age children (2 years - 6 years). It will be a space where children can crawl up and roll down hills, mix soil and water into magical concoctions, stomp through puddles and practice their balance as they teeter along logs and stumps.
This fundraising draw is a way for community members to show their support for this project and to be involved in helping build a healthier future for children in the centre.
