By Wendy Anderson, Childcare Administration Director
My first day on the job this past week provided me with an opportunity to tour the Quarry Park Child Development Center. While still under construction it is clear to see each of the spaces and to imagine children at play. I was able to see the kitchen which will provide the children’s lunches and snack times. There is an indoor gym for children to experience indoor gross-motor play.
A large outdoor play area will feature landscaping, grass and a discovery trail for stroller walks and bike riding.
One feature I particularly enjoyed seeing was the Experience Studio (Below: Caryl Broen & Trudy Halvorsen in the Experience Studio). This space will provide lots of unique experiences to support YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum. I could really envision children baking their own cookies or working on a science project there.
It was great to see the centre as we prepare to welcome children to the facility mid August.
We are excited to also be preparing to open a second Child Development Centre in the Quarry Park community. Located in the Remington YMCA, this centre is scheduled to open early July. Like the Quarry Park Child Development Centre, the childcare centre will feature the YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum. Children will be able to experience time in the on-site Calgary Public Library and utilize YMCA facilities including the pool and active play areas.
