For the month of May, we will spend three classes discussing Spring, one class on Mother’s Day, two classes on Health and Nutrition, and we will finish off the month discussing Farms.

Motor Development Milestones
I have received information from Mr. Jan Gervais, Occupational Therapist, on the gross motor milestones for children aged 0 – 72 months. When Jan assesses the PUF children he uses the Peabody Motor Development Assessment Charts to determine where each child is at in their development. It is a very good guideline to follow and will be available on the Playschool website shortly. We will continue to add resources to the website and send out information on the development of gross motor skills.
Carstairs Playschool Board Volunteers
The Carstairs Playschool operates under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors. Having a full board allows the society to make decisions with multiple peoples input and ideals. The Carstairs Playschool Board is currently seeking volunteer board members. There are 6 key positions within the Carstairs Playschool board that could require volunteers. A detailed description of each position can be found on the website. If you can contribute your time, ability to collaborate and leadership one evening a month, and are interested in exploring this opportunity, call Melanie Lorek at (403) 554-2672 or email us at email@example.com to find out whether this volunteer opportunity is right for you.
