Calendar and Events
The trip to Benchview Equestrian Centre was a wonderful way to end our month of learning all about the farm. The weather was perfect and the children enjoyed taking turns grooming different parts of the horse and exploring the goat and donkey pen.
In May the children enjoyed a First Ride bus trip travelling through the north end of the city, passing many of the schools that some of our graduates will be attending from September. Some of the children’s comments included “This is so fun” or ” This is amazing”. It was definitely a hit!
In April our preschool went on a very special field trip to a real-life fire station!
At Fire Station #2 our preschoolers learned how to discharge a fire extinguisher and hold a fire hose! And it was so much fun sitting in the driver’s seat of the fire truck!
Our Hop-A-Thon that took place in April was egg-stremely fun! Thank you to everyone for participating. We raised a grand total of $1726.25!
BINGO FUNDRAISER – February 2023
In February we held a Bingo Fundraising event. As a preschool community, we were able to raise a grand total of $5491.30! Thank you to everyone for participating, the event was enormous fun!
At the end of February our preschoolers went on a field trip to the library! The wonderful Dr. Huq branch welcomed us with a tour of the library facilities, story time and songs, and a bit of a bubble party!
Our bookworms had such an amazing time and came away with lots of new reading material.
Thank you to St. Catharines Public Library for hosting us, what a great way to encourage a love of reading and learning in our little ones.
Halloween was SPOOK-TACULAR at North End Coop!
The children had so much fun dressing up and taking part in their costume parade before making their way to our outdoor play area for an exciting pumpkin scavenger hunt!
Indoors they handed out treats to friends and examined the inside of a pumpkin, scooping out seeds to make a jack-o-lantern.
This fall, our preschoolers went on an amazing field trip to Bry-Anne Farms! We saw a live drama presentation, explored corn and straw mazes, and took a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch where the children got to select their own pumpkins to keep. Then we snacked on delicious apples, played tractors and excavators in the corn pit and got to say hi to some very loveable baby animals. What a wonderful learning experience; the children (and parents!) had so much fun!
30th September marks National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. At North End Co-op Preschool we wore orange in acknowledgement, and we observed this important day by hearing stories, colouring and decorating orange shirts, and feeling the beat of the drum.
“Every child matters, including you and me. With our orange hearts, we walk in harmony.”
Our yard sale on 24th September was a huge success! We raised an amazing $481.45!
To all those who stopped by and made a purchase, helped attend our stall, or donated any items, thank you so much!
