Tonight I attended the 30th anniversary celebration of the Regina Early Learning Centre. The Centre is an amazing place, having had such a positive impact on the lives of the 3,000 children who have passed through their doors.
Through a variety of several innovative programmes, the Centre works with under-privileged children from birth to kindergarten age to ensure their healthy development. Parents are actively involved in the Centre. The founder, Anne Luke (pictured here with ELC students), was inspiring tonight as she talked about the early beginnings of the Centre to the present time. It was also great to hear former students talk about their beloved teacher. Several friends work there so it was a fun night as well.
And tomorrow is the final day of November – the last day of National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo). I might have another scarf finished, or if the weather isn’t too cold, I’m hoping to get some pictures of Lytton, my big brown dog to show you. He was recently tagged for a meme by Yolanda Elizabet’s cat family at Bliss.

The last nine happy, but hard-working years of my teaching carrer were spent in two nursery schools…so I was identifying with all you have written about. Great work being done there, Kate. Thanks for sharing.Love your knitting and your samplers with ribbon…absolutely beautiful..such happy, vibrant colours you used.Today is St Andrew’s Day here in Scotland, and it is my first blogging birthday 🙂
Three thousand kids, that’s pretty impressive. A very nice post.
today is your last day of daily blogging. You made it girl. I can’t wait for Lytton to pop up on your blog.
Glad you made it through that snow to the invitation for dinner. It does sound like this centre is doing so much good work to help give these kids a solid start in life. I do hope you are managing to keep warm, just looking at that snow is giving me the chills. x
Sounds like a wonderful centre.Well done on getting through posting month too.It’s so gorgeous that Lytton has been tagged! Can’t wait to see it. :O)
I look forward to seeing that scarf, and of course, Lytton. Great name that dog has.
Hi Kate! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Beeswax, eh??? I would love to try it!!! Thanks again! Keep on creating 🙂
I’m with Lisa – you did it! I once posted every day for two months, so I know what a challenge you have faced! Congratulations!Young children are sponges for information. They look so happy.Now, lets see Lytton :o) But you are allowed a breather…
Oh what fun that you dog has been tagged to do a meme by a cat. I can’t wait to see this. That is a wonderful learning center that you have up in Regina. Hope all is well with you, Kate. We are one day closer to more pretty flowers in your garden! 😉
Hi Kate, the program sounds great, much like the National Head Start program where I have worked my last 6 years in U.S. Teachers like the one you described deserve all our respect and the children will surely remember her in the years to come. Great post, Andrea
