Cold Toes Winter Snows on!

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” 

November is here!  The dark grows longer but the Auroras grow brighter as the blanket of snow crunches softly underfoot.  The warm sweater of hoar frost clings to the trees while shining diamonds dress the wintery ground.  And nothing beats the warming cup of cocoa.

The Yellowknife Playgroup Association is pleased to announce that: Mondays will now be held Regularly at the Fieldhouse!!! 
Until January 27th, 2015, we are dropping the rotating schedule in favour of becoming regular users, which in turn grants us storage for our equipment!! Hooray!!!   
If anyone knows of a lockable cart on castors that may be available for us to use or purchase, for storing our toys in, or if we have any skilled builders who could help us construct a cart, please contact us at

In addition, we would like to introduce our two new alternating Monday Coordinators: April and Credence!  Thank you so much for stepping up and volunteering to coordinate our Monday Sessions.  

We are still seeking alternate coordinators for our Wednesday and Friday sessions.  If you may be interested, please feel free to approach Coordinators Hille or Zoe.  

This Week:

Fire Safety
Friday, November 28, 9:30-11:30am

Local Fireperson, Gerda Groothuizen, will be dropping in between 10-11am, for a special presentation geared to the preschool audience, and a discussion for about fire safety for the caregivers of preschoolers.  Play the "stop, drop & roll" game, and complete a fire safety craft with us.  They're not too young to learn about the dangers of fire and how to stay safe.

Plan Ahead:

Christmas Potluck Party
Friday, December 12, 9:30-11:30

It's the long awaited party of Christmas Cheer, our Annual Christmas Potluck!
Bring a snack to share (no peanuts please) and join us for festive crafts, games, songs and stories.  Just $2 per child (babies under 6 months and caregivers are still free).

Sshhhhh... It is rumoured the Great Jolly Ho Ho himself will be joining us with gifts for the Kids.  Have your child's photo taken with Santa!

Please RSVP to or sign-up at Wednesday or Friday Session so we can ensure Santa brings enough gifts (or coal) for all the children.
