Kidsplace Nursery School

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!

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.

  • November 13/14 – Scholastic book orders are due

Trick or Treat! {Kidplace Featured Friday}


It’s here…the dentists’ favourite week of the year! Kids might be dreaming about all that candy, but you can bet more than a few parents are scheming how to reduce some of that Halloween sugar intake. Some trade toys for treats. Some chocolate just magically makes its way to Mom’s late night snack jar…

Kidsplace is gearing up for its second week (Oct. 28 – Nov 1) of the Halloween theme and we have some fun activities planned. You know the drill…read on to find out all the (not so) spooky details!
