February’s Silent Auction : Learning to Crochet With Gareth Barlow

Our February Silent Auction is not an item but a fun evening for you and your friends.  Our President of Bright Beginnings Preschool, Gareth Barlow, has kindly donated an evening of learning to crochet, combined with local craft beer tasting.  Gareth can cater for up to four people and will provide beer (and wine, if needed!) along with all of the necessary equipment/supplies and tuition to learn the basics of crocheting.  Sounds like to perfect way to spend an evening with some friends while this long winter drags out!  Thank you Gareth for your donation!

You can bid at the preschool or put your bid on our Facebook page and we will try and keep it updated.

December At Bright Beginnings

It was a short month but we packed a lot into it! Lots of Santa time, Social Thinking, crafts, show and tell, running around and getting messy. Hello, 2018! We’re ready for you.


A huge shout out to Park Place Lodge for hosting a great fundraiser Elk Valley Festival Of Trees. The People’s Choice award went to Bright Beginnings Preschool – earning an additional $1200 for having the most voting tickets. Their total amount raised with the tree bid was $4800.50!!
