Tansi/Hello friends and families!
Friends and Families, we hope you had a good summer break. It was a pleasure to see some of you at our outdoor play space at the preschool site over the summer and at our 5th Ave location.
This month the Regina Early Years Family Resource Centre is happy to announce that our St. Matthew site is opening up for drop-in play Tuesdays and Thursdays (9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00 – 4:00pm). We are closing over the lunch hour to ensure our staff have time to eat.
If you are planning to attend the St. Matthew site, please park behind the Church and follow the signs on the outside of the school to our door. Once you are there, you will need to call the cell phone (306) 526-6427. The phone number is also posted on the door of the school. You can also knock really loudly on the door, or go around the side of the building and knock on the window.

Zoom Sessions on Child Care
Growing Seeds – ASQ (Ages and Stages Questionnaires)
For families who are interested in learning more about how to support their children’s developing skills, and/or are concerned about particulars around their child’s development. The ASQ’s can be done in private sessions, or in a group to meet each family’s needs. Support for referrals is also supported through this program. Please contact Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this.
We are continuing to be mask friendly in our indoor space. We will continue to be vigilant in our cleaning and sanitizing of our space in order to keep everyone as safe as possible. We do ask that if your child puts any toys in their mouth that they be placed in the used toy boxes that are place around the Centre for more thorough cleaning.
Please visit our online calendar, see our current Program Posters, and visit our Facebook and Instagram for pre-recorded and live sessions! Any program and schedule changes will be posted on our Facebook page.
Thank you for your dedicated support!
Anita and the EYFRC Team
