May StrongStart calendars

Usually it is April when we see a resurgence of families at StrongStart due to the milder weather.  Although we are still getting a healthy number of families attending, we are still waiting for the spring rush.  Hopefully May brings us some sunny days and above zero temperatures.  Ha!  Hope to see you soon!

StrongStart Family Gym Night

StrongStart Family Gym Night

As part of Fort St. John Loves Families Week, SD 60 hosted a StrongStart Family Gym Night at Robert Ogilvie.  It was a wonderful evening.  So wonderful, in fact, that many friends did not want to leave.  Myself included.  Have a peak.

These kids got 60 minutes of physical activity today.  Click below to find out why that’s important. Bring Back Play!

June Early Learning Calendars

June Early Learning Calendars

Where did the winter go?  It’s ironic how long the school year lasts and then, in retrospect, how quickly it seems to have passed.  My parents tell me it’s like that with parenting.  Like many of you, I’m still in the thick of that part of my life.  Enjoy this month of programming with us and enjoy your summer break.  We’ll miss all of you!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions over the summer.  I’m just a click, text or phone call away.  I can help you find summer programs, registered and licensed childcare, pre-school opportunities and family supports. If I don’t have answers for you, it’s my job to help you find them.  Happy June!

ADHD may be overdiagnosed in youngest classmates

ADHD may be overdiagnosed in youngest classmates

This CBC article opens the door for more discussion about what ADHD really is and what it means for younger aged students and boys.  I don’t have all the answers but if a certain group is more highly represented by this “developmental disorder”, we should all be asking ourselves a few more questions; what is being done to change the environment for the child instead of the child for the environment.

‘Less mature children’ in a class are ‘inappropriately labelled and treated’: UBC researcher

Sir Ken Robinson speaks eloquently about the structure of our educational system in this YouTube clip. He touches on ADHD and offers a very intriguing editorial on how to “treat” it.   In this time of educational upheaval, there is always more opportunity for discussion about who we are as parents, as educators, as members of this community.
