Wayne Anderson, a representative of the telecommunications company, presented a cheque for $2,000 last Thursday to Gloria Cleve, early leaning project manager for School District 59, who accepted on behalf of the South Peace Building Learning (BLT) Society. The Society is behind the development of the Kiwanis Early Learning Hub, a facility with resources for preschool children and their parents to play, learn and grow.
The centre includes the Children First Indoor Playground, an interactive play environment that is available for families with preschool children from Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon. The contribution from Telus will allow the Society to plan for the indoor playground to be open additional hours.
The public is invited to the grand opening of the Kiwanis Early Learning Hub this Thursday, Nov. 24, at 3 p.m. The event is scheduled to coincide with a celebration of “National Child Day” that will include lots of activities for children, as well as cake and other refreshments. The Kiwanis Early Learning Hub is located behind the South Peace Campus of Dawson Creek Secondary School, off of Sam Wilson Way.
