STOUGHTON - The Stoughton and District Playschool Co-operative will be holding its annual Facebook auction.
This non-profit organization is headed up by volunteers, consisting of parents and community members for the past 40 years. The playschool is open for children ages three and four, and usually consists of eight to 12 students. The program is held at the Grace United Church in Stoughton on Tuesday and Thursdays from October through May.
When at the playschool, the youngsters learn how to print their names, have different levels of activities and have centres for motor skills, were they also house toys, while always learning with a fun and play-based structure. The class runs for three hours and it’s a great way to help children become more social while preparing them for their first year of kindergarten.
Erin Richard from Forget is the teacher at this school since 2015. She continues to make the children feel welcome while providing a fun and learning-based experience for the students.
The auction is located on their Facebook page and is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. on April 8 and continue until 10 p.m. on April 9. Many local and area businesses have generously donated to this cause, and each item will be posted with a photo. At the end of the auction, if you are the winning bid, you will be contacted with the information needed for payment and pickup.
The group is hoping to raise enough money for some new activities for the class and possibly a much-needed new floor in the classroom.
If you are interested in donating or wish to have your child attend this program, please contact Cheryl MacDougall Lake via Facebook or contact her at 306-421-3479. She will gladly give you the information needed.
