Over the last few weeks, I have had a number of inquiries about sites or pages that share events and activities for younger children. And, on my Facebook page today, there is another one, so I thought I would post my usual suggestions here, for all to see:
- St. John's Kid - A great site and she has a playdate for 0-5 yrs weekly on Sundays at Hava Java downtown.
- Brighter Futures - Lots of services for infants and tots and they organize playdates during the week.
- Family ChildCare Connections - Geared towards all pre-schoolers and their care-givers, FCC also has playdates on Tuesday and Thursdays...and they have a slew of information on local resources and childcare options.
- Baby Gear to Share - Just like it sounds, this local business rents out baby gear (great for when family comes to visit, or if you aren't sure you'll really use something - like a baby swing - enough before it is outgrown to warrant the investment ;-)....but they may know of events for tots.
Also (last but hopefully not least ;-), on the home page of my blog (http://stjohnsmom.blogspot.ca/) you will see a "Some Great Local Sites" sidebar... it is about 1/3 of the way down the page, on the right hand side. It may be worth a look-through, to see if there is something that tickles your fancy and interests. In the meantime, anything interesting I find out about (through the sites or emails) is put in my Calendar (scroll down to the bottom of the home page), and while I do focus on school age kids, some of them have younger siblings, so you never know what you'll find here ;-)
Have any more ideas? Let me know and/or feel free to comment on this post :-)
Hope that helps!
If you have something to add to the Calendar, please let me know! Complete details can be found here and I welcome being added to any "Events Distribution list" your facility might have :-)
