With September comes the opportunity for exploring new programs and extracurricular activities for your young family. The possibilities are seemingly endless, ranging from music and dance to gymnastics, sports and science.
I'm sitting with a group of three-year-olds at the Green Door Nursery School in southwest Calgary. I've interrupted them while they are busy assembling Mr. Potato-Heads and sculpting play dough to ask, "Where do you love to go when it's nice out?" Little Anne-Marie, her blonde pony tails bobbing frantically, shout-whispers in my ear. "My favorite thing is to go to the park with Grandma. I like the slide but I like the swings best!" I try prompting the group with some formal names of Calgary attractions but it seems Anne-Marie speaks for the class - the big hit with three-year-olds is 'the park'.
School is out, summer is upon you and you have "only" 66 days in which to keep your child(ren) occupied. What do you do? Where can you go? How can you make it easy on your pocketbook?
