Centre Play
Centre play is every day before and after theme activities or fieldtrips.

Outdoor centre play includes using equipment from our sports shed, the DLG playgrounds and visits to community parks that are within walking distance in Marpole. Indoor centre play is in our portables with organized and free-play options like arts-crafts, baking for snack and fundraising, building, dance, drama, games, ping pong, pool and science kits. Computers and arcade games are on during a set time. The indoor routine also includes individual and small group English language and math skills tutoring – please speak to our staff if your child needs specific help.

Field Trips
Field trips leave after the 10 am snack and aim to return by 3 pm; any changes to the leave / return times will be posted by the beginning of the week. We drive our centre bus and mini-van for field trips. Adventure Club may use public transit for a specific event - this will be posted with the activity plan for the week. We plan sunny and rainy day options for each field trip day but our first choice is to go to parks and beaches. We may change times / days due to weather and available booking times at some indoor options.

Routine for week 1 and week 6

The centre is closed Monday, July 1 and Monday, August 5 so the routine is a little different. This week includes: theme activities, a play safe and social contract review, centre play, backfield water play and a field trip day which will be posted at the beginning of the week.

Routine for Week 9:
We are in the portables but some furniture and supplies will be moved into our designated DLG space this week due to the upcoming construction of a new school. We are still staying open in order to provide needed child care. Our routine may be very different. We still plan on having fun.
