It’s all about the kids.

For Joan MacGillivray, community action coordinator with Nechako Valley Community Services in Fort St. James, this couldn’t be more true.

Since Sept, 12, a preschool gym program is being offered for all local preschool children, 0 – 5 years and their parents.

“It’s an excellent opportunity for kids, even newborns to get out and have fun with one another. There are lots of activities and toys available for them to enjoy,” MacGillivray said.

The program is available for all children and is offered from 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. on Mondays at Nak’azdli Daycare and on Wednesdays at the Nak’albun School gym.

“This is also a great opportunity to get moms out of the house,” MacGillivray said.

“It’s a good way for them to get together and connect with other moms.”

Nechako Valley Community Services will also be hosting a first aid course specially designed for parents.

“Come join us for training in first aid basics that every parent should know,” MacGillivray said.

“The course will cover bandaging techniques, infant CPR, what to do when a baby is choking and anything else that parents would like to learn.”

The course will be offered on Oct. 12 from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. at Nak’azdli Daycare.

There are 12 seats available and babysitting is provided.

For more information or to register, call: (250) 996-7645.
