Fernie Kids Tri – Volunteers Needed

Fernie Kids Tri - BBQ Fundraiser

A little message from the fundraising committee:

So I am a part of the Fundraising Committee, and we have just received word that we had signed up to do the BBQ for this weekend’s Kids Triathalon on Sunday Sept 17th from 10-2pm.

The new Coordinators haven’t been given much information to go on, so I’m helping out and said I could try and rally some volunteers to BBQ, take money, and generally help put out buns and empty bins etc…. Please text me at (250) 430-7311 if you can fill an hour or two time slots, and please spread the word- as we also haven’t been given a class list or anything like that to contact all parents….

I appreaciate your short notice help in advance

Kind Words From Our Parents


At the end of the year we like to get feedback from our parents so we can get brighter and brighter. This year we had some wonderful responses and I just had to share some of them. Here are a few answers to our question “What do you and your child like best about the preschool program?”

“They get to do so many activities.”

“My child likes his friends the most and i like seeing him playing with his friends! I also like when the weather is nice they’re outside playing!”

“We love the field trips into the community and especially the involvement with IDES.”

“I like that fun is a priority, my child says he likes getting cupcakes :-)”

“Learning through play.”

“Laid-back, play-based environment”

“My daughter gets to spend time with friends, I know she’s being stimulated and In a fun safe environment”

“His awesome friends”
