It all started with an Ugly Sweater Christmas Dance Party held early December 2018. The purpose of the event was to bring the community and surrounding areas together for a night of fun and to give back to the community. A BIG thank-you to The Fundy Curling Club for donating the use of the building and to Ethel Butland for the donation of mittens; both contributions to our first playground fundraiser were greatly appreciated.
The construction of two new playgrounds at the Chignecto campground in Fundy National Park are now completed.
As part of their commitment to expand Riverside Consolidated as the center of the community, Chipoudy Communities Revitalization Committee is applying for approval of a preschool in the building. They strongly believe that this is really the best opportunity for sustaining our school and using the space wisely.
There are rules to follow to become a licensed childcare center. Many of these rules necessarily involve a cost in order to comply. For example, hiring a teacher who has either a BEd or ECE certification. We also will comply with using the NB Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care. Certain materials to use with the children; an assortment of age appropriate toys and learning games; consumable items for art,and experimentation – all of these and more will require funding.
In order for them to proceed, it is very important that they have accurate numbers of how many parents of 3 and 4 year olds, would use a preschool, so we need some information from you!
