Annual General Meeting June 11th
The Daycare’s AGM will be Tuesday, June 11th from 6-7 PM. Please attend to hear about our year in review.  The AGM is also when the Board of Directors is elected. The Board meets monthly to oversee the management of the Daycare. It’s a great way to participate in our community and make a difference.  There are 12 board seats and we know a few board members are retiring; we are therefore in the process of recruiting new members wishing to serve on the Board. For more information about the AGM, or if you want information about serving on the Board, contact Donna at

Staffing News

We would like to welcome a new ECE to our daycare team.  Soren Whitney is a recent graduate and he will be working in room 108.
JCD Open House June 19 from 5-6 PM
Please join us for our 2nd Annual JCD Open House on Wednesday, June 19 from 5-6 PM. Each room will be showcasing what the children have been doing this year.  Make sure to check out the event board at the main entrance as some rooms have special activities planned for their families.  For safety and ratio reasons, when parents arrive Staff will be signing children out on the attendance; so if you have more than one child, we ask that you take your child with you when you go to the next room.
Bike to School Week!
Ride, scoot or roll your way to school the week of June 3.  Thanks to the Jackman Eco Team for organizing this event.  Once again the daycare will be providing stickers on Monday for those who arrive on wheels and on Tuesday we will have mini muffins. Make sure to fill out a raffle ballot when you roll in on Wednesday.

Room Visits
Starting this month, about half of the children will practice “moving up” to a new program room. Pairs of children will be doing room visits to get them acquainted with the older program room and to prepare them for summer or September

  • Current Preschool children will visit JK in the summer
  • Current JK children will visit the SK room (207A)
  • Current SK children will visit room 105, grade 1 room
  • Current Grade 1 children will visit room 101, grade 2 room

If you have questions about any of this, please speak to your child’s daycare staff.

A reminder that the Daycare will be CLOSED Friday June 28 and Friday August 30 to allow staff to prep for summer and fall.
