The Centre celebrates special days and holidays such as Thanksgiving, Hallowe'en, Christmas, Valentine's Day and Easter and we welcome the sharing of other traditions and family celebrations in our classrooms.

Thanksgiving - Thanksgiving is a time for being thankful and helping people in need. Children learn about Thanksgiving by participating in a Food Drive and celebrating with a special lunch.

Hallowe'en Parade - Our teachers and the children wear their costumes to the Centre and participate in a parade. Children enjoy decorating their classrooms with spooky art work and playing many Hallowe'en games.

Christmas - Santa's visit to the Childcare Centre is a favourite Christmas tradition. The children enjoy singing Christmas songs as they anxiously wait for Santa to come to their classrooms. Christmas is also a time to help less fortunate children experience the magic of the season. Children experience the spirit of Christmas by collecting unwrapped toys for our Toy Drive.

Valentine's Day - Children celebrate with our Red and Pink Day and create fun crafts for their classroom and cards for their family. They look forward to exchanging valentine cards with their friends and sharing special treats.

Pancake Tuesday - Children enjoy pancakes for snack on this day.

Easter - Each classroom holds a fun Easter egg hunt and children make baskets and decorate eggs.

Birthdays - Birthdays are special occasions in our programs and each month we celebrate children's birthdays with a special birthday treat in our classrooms. Due to the many food allergies in our Centre, outside treats are not permitted.

Mother's Day Tea and Father's Day Picnic - This is a special day for mom and dad to visit the Centre to enjoy songs, poems, a special gift, treats and lots of hugs and kisses.

Senior Kindergarten Graduation - We are very proud of the children's accomplishments at Busy Hands 'n' Minds and celebrate their success with a formal and extremely memorable graduation ceremony.

Parental Involvement & Family Events - At Busy Hands 'n' Minds Childcare Centre, we recognize the importance of working together, as partners, to provide your child with the best early childhood experience possible. Your involvement is key to your child's success and we are always available to respond to family needs and provide information about your child's learning and other activities throughout the day. We provide opportunities for daily communication (verbal and/or written), monthly program calendars and Developmental Reports. Parent participation is always welcomed on our field trips, special classroom events, fund-raising activities and family events planned throughout the year.
