Wendy’s House

The concept of play is at the very core of Wendy鈥檚 House. The connections between make-believe play and early language and literacy development are well supported in research.

Additionally, children exercise both social and emotional self-regulation when they have to wait their turn or share toys. In fact, children often show greater self-regulation during play than at other times. When visiting please bring your child鈥檚 ID (birth certificate, status card, BC ID, or passport) with you when you come to play.

Ready, Set, Learn

Ready Set Learn is a drop-in health and education fair that will help prepare your child for Kindergarten.

These are free, drop-in, and interactive events for caregivers and children ages 2-5.

Each school in our district hosts a “Ready Set Go” event to help ease the transition from home to school. In the month of May, all Kindergarten students who have registered for school in September will be invited to attend the “Ready Set Go” event at the school in their catchment area. 

These events are a great way to introduce the child to the school setting, meet the teacher, and become familiar with the classroom environment. Children will participate in a variety of play based learning activities and take home a supply bag with book(s), crayons, scissors, and other literacy related supplies to help build confidence.
