Happy Holidays from Kidsplace!


Our little ones have been hard at work learning their Christmas songs, and this week they get to share them with us! Our Christmas concerts will take place at the end of this week! Please note the slightly different class times:

Tues/Thurs AM class ~ Thursday, Dec.18 at 10 am – 11 am (arrive 9:45 am)Tues/Thurs PM class ~ Thursday, Dec.18 at 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm (arrive 1 pm)Mon/Wed/Fri class ~ Friday, Dec.19 at 10 am – 11 am (arrive 9:45 am)

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your concert start time to allow us to take attendance and organize the children. Outdoor boots must left on the mat upstairs and indoor shoes worn as usual. The concerts will begin promptly, so it is important that all children are in the classroom early so they can get settled and ready to perform. You are welcome to invite guests to attend but please keep in mind that the concert is brief and space is very limited.

We expect that our concert and party will last about one hour from the beginning of our performance. Please help with some clean up before leaving to help us set up for the next class. .

Merry Christmas from the staff and Board of Directors! The school will be closed from Dec. 22 – Jan 2. Classes resume on January 5, 2015.

Another Busy Week!


It was a busy week at Kidsplace! A few highlights:

  • Thank you to everyone who came to the Annual General Meeting on Monday. Your attendance and participation was appreciated. Approved minutes from all board meetings can be found in the classroom.
  • Mom’s Pantry products arrived, and we raised close to $850! Thank you everyone! Our next fundraiser will be in the New Year.
  • We had a fun-filled field trip to the Henderson library! We hope everyone had a great time!


We would like to remind everyone who is picking up or dropping off a student to please take off their boots/shoes at the top of the stairs to help avoid slips/falls, and to keep the school clean.


Our Christmas concerts/parties will be held in our classroom on the last days of classes before the winter break (Dec 18 & 19th). We will provide you with more details soon!


Our theme next week will be opposites!

Kidsplace Nursery School

Brush Your Teeth! Wash Your Hands!

Hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween! A big thank you to everyone who helped out with our Halloween parties, and made some fantastic treats to share.

Our clever teachers at Kidsplace chose a great theme for the next two weeks! Dental Health & Hygiene! Very fitting for right after Halloween.

As soon as we can, we will provide details about our Mom’s Pantry fundraiser, let you know the grand total raised, the pick up date, and the winners of our fundraising prizes for the first part of the school year. Thank you for your support.

A few friendly reminders:

  • November 6/7: School picture orders are due
  • November 11 – School closed for Remembrance Day
  • November 13/14 – Scholastic book orders are due
  • November 17 at 7pm – Annual General Meeting in the Calvin School library. Please attend to learn more about the school, meet the teachers and the board members.
Featured Friday, Kidsplace Nursery School

All About Me! {Kidsplace Featured Friday}


This coming week (Sept. 17 – 21) Kidsplace students get to talk about themselves and their families, and make some really cool crafts to boot! If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to send a family picture to share with the class as well as to use in a craft. It should be 4 inches x 6 inches in size and can be either an actual photograph, photocopy or scanned copy that you do not need returned in its original state. Please label with your child’s name.


The September Scholastic Book Orders are due September 20! You may pay with cash (be sure to put in a sealed baggie or envelope, labelled clearly with your child’s name) or cheque (made out to Scholastic Canada…NOT Kidsplace!)

And a reminder…Scholastic is a book club, and not a fundraiser for the school. Items purchased through Scholastic does not count toward your fundraising.


A gentle reminder…please remember that when you are dropping off or picking up your child during the day, there are classes in session at Calvin Christian School. Please speak in low tones, and do not let young children run in the halls or go into any of the rooms. And, please do not bring food or beverages (particularly hot ones) into the school.

Teachers come out at the end of class to fill you in on the events of the day and share important information…please be sure to give them your full attention. Thanks so much…your cooperation is appreciated!


We are currently recruiting for two important board positions: vice president and secretary. The VP’s main duty is to keep track of our enrollment numbers and help with registration. The secretary takes notes at our monthly meetings and ensures they are distributed. Neither of these positions are time consuming…please consider if you could give one evening a month (on average) and support our board. (Psssst…added bonus! If you’re on the board, you don’t have to take on a mini-job like classroom laundry! (You have enough of your own, right?))

We also need classroom volunteers. Spend some time in class and see firsthand what kind of fun activities happen every day at Kidsplace!

Call 204-661-1325 for more information on any of these great opportunities!


We still have a few openings at Kidsplace! Consider telling your friends and family…fall registration closes at the end of October!
