What a roller coaster of a January, from the deep dark cold into a bright, hoary wonderland!  Welcome to 2017!!  Surely many more surprises await us this year.  
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Mondays & Wednesdays

Yes that's right!  We are playing at the Fieldhouse 2 Days each week!  Come on out for a run, bounce, kick, or ride.  There is lots of space for the kids to let loose their energy.  Still just $2 per child (infants under 6 months & caregivers are FREE!), thanks to a generous grant from the City of Yellowknife that helps us with our facility rentals!!  

Please remember:
  • Remove outside footwear - wear inside shoes or slippers on the field.
  • Eats & drinks consumed off the field - you are welcome to sit at the bleachers, in a box, or at the lobby tables.
  • No shoes or toys on/in the Bouncy Castles
  • Don't pay at the Front Desk, just come on out to the field & drop your fee into the bucket when you sign-in! Take a moment & read the waiver.

Calvary Community Church

We are still playing at the Church on Fridays.  Come on out and check it out, it's a whole new world of toys to play with, and we offer crafts, story time & song games.  Just $2 per child.  Let the children play while you relax a bit.  Ask the coordinator about coffee or tea.

Silent gratitude isn't very much use to anyone -Gertrude Stein

πŸ‘Thank you to everyone who joined us over the Winter Break! We had a fabulous time playing with you.  πŸ‘Special thanks to the Spence, Vander Veen, Lindsay, Fish & Lee Families who volunteered their time & family members to Coordinate & operate the extra special Play Sessions.  πŸ‘Much gratitude is owed to the wonderful Gourmet Cup; who loaned us urns and donated coffee for our Sliding Party on such short notice.   And while YKPG is thanking people: πŸ‘Thank You Mary Kelly for coming out to Playgroup and putting up with our unruly crowd of music lovers.  We hope you will continue to work with us to ease out the kinks.

Canada Post Community Foundation Grant
πŸ‘Yellowknife Playgroup Association is very appreciative of the new toys & equipment purchased with the CPCF Grant.  πŸ‘Additional thanks to Flaghouse and Quality Classrooms for their pleasant staff, great selection, and efficient service!  Come on out and explore the new toys!

 πŸ˜Œ  Clean-up Help 
πŸ‘Much thanks to those Playgroupers who help the Coordinators with Toy Clean-up.  Your hands are appreciated.  Now, you can also help wipe down the toys as part of our efforts to keep the toys clean & germ-free! Just ask the Coordinators how you can help. 😍
