Four different park locations: Little League Ball Park, Lake Cowichan; Mesachie Skydome Ball Field; Honeymoon Bay playground (in front of the hall), and Youbou Little League Park.
This is an organized activity time with facilitators and is not a daycare or babysitting program. Join us for games, crafts and other fun activities around the Cowichan Lake area in July and August. Please pack snacks, a full water bottle with your child’s name on it, a hat and appropriate outdoor attire. This is a RAIN or SHINE outdoor program that will not be moving indoors but will have access to a washroom (flush toilet or portapotti).
Due to COVID-19 parents are required to apply sunscreen to their child before sending them to the park. Children will be required to wash their hands when they arrive at the park, before they leave the park and before they eat their snack. Hand sanitizer will not be provided. Playground equipment may be used but will not be sanitized. We will not allow shared equipment or craft supplies. Children will be encouraged to maintain physical distancing. We ask that you keep your child home if sick.

Coming in August: Summer Fun at Play & Learn!
Ages 3 - 4
Learn through play in a clean, safe, nurturing early learning environment at the Play & Learn program. This program is designed to introduce children to an early learning environment and get ready for Kindergarten! Self-care and independence will be taught, as children build their confidence and self-esteem outside the home. Play with friends in an environment where a cooperative spirit is encouraged. This program incorporates spontaneous self-directed play and exploration as well as planned and organized activities in a comfortable and relaxed environment that is conducive to positive learning. Children may be registered at 3 years of age or one month prior to their third birthday. Children must be completely toilet trained, no pull ups. Come Play & Learn with us! Parent participation may be required.
