To our community,
Today, I am pleased to announce a new partnership between our school and the York Child Development & Family Services Inc through the Early Years program. The program is set to run for seven weeks on a trial basis on the following dates:
- Thursday October 8
- Friday October 16
- Friday October 23
- Friday October 30
- Friday November 6
- Friday November 13
- Friday November 20
We will host a drop in program for families and preschool children in the area who will one day likely be Robert Munsch P.S students! The partnership is a great fit for our school and with our board’s Early Years’ Strategy. The strand Building Capacity, Learning Together is a theme that will no doubt be prominent in our second year together. The purpose of the program is to support young families in the area of literacy in particular.
The program will run from 9-11 on those mornings. It will be staffed by two staff from YCD’s team. Families attending will sign in at our office and be greeted by a YCD staff member. They will also have a badge indicating they are part of the program.
The program begins on Thursday October 8, 2015 and a flyer is available with more information.
We look forward to this partnership and further partnerships with our community.
