Children's Centre
When we moved to Quadra three years ago one of our biggest concerns was finding new childcare for our two sons. What a relief it was to walk into the Children's Centre for the first time and instantly be put at ease. I knew right away that our children would be happy and thrive in the caring, stimulating, and child-centred environment that we found there. My only regret was that we hadn't moved to Quadra earlier so that our children could have spent more of their years at this amazing place.

Over the past three years our family's relationship with the centre has grown and deepened. Our kids have graduated to the Quadra Kids program and I became a board member. I wanted to do my part to support the important work that the centre does - providing quality early care and learning for island families and helping to shape independent, compassionate, and creative young people.

We are all familiar with the truism "it takes a village, to raise a child." It is also true that it takes a community to support quality early care and learning and the hardworking, committed people who provide it. We are so lucky to have a centre that is recognized provincially for its excellence, but Quadra Children Centre relies on the generous support of Quadra residents to keep running and providing the quality care that they do.

In that spirit of support, we invite you to take part in our next fundraising event: the Fall Into Winter Dinner happening on Saturday, November 23rd. The Thievin Brothers, along with an array of very special guests, will entertain while you enjoy a delicious two course meal in the Heron's dining room. Bring along your cheque book as you won't want to miss out on the silent auction with items such as a basket packed with items from Q Cove merchants, another loaded with local foods, works from local artisans and much more.

Tickets for this great event are $49 and seating begins at 6pm. Call 285-3322 to reserve your seat. Supporting quality Quadra Island early care and learning doesn't get more fun or tasty than this!
