Parents and Tots – Friday, 9:30am – 11:30am.                                                                             

The Parents and Tots program was created by Metchosin Community Association to help parents, caregivers and children avoid the isolation that sometimes comes with living in a rural environment like Metchosin. Children from newborn to six years of age are received in a family environment that

allows them to feel happy and secure.  It provides an ideal time each week when children can gather to have fun and learn. During the two hours everyone socializes. Parents and caregivers gather to share aspects of their daily lives, while children have fun playing with a variety of materials. A worthwhile time for all!

The program has three parts: one is "The Musical Experience" with a music teacher, who introduces the children to the wonderful world of music. The second part is “The Snack" in which children share fruit, vegetables and other healthy foods. The third part is dedicated to "Toys and Other Activities" where children play and express their creativity and imagination, sharing ideas and toys. This is an ideal time to acquire more patience and respect for others.

If the weather allows, the children can enjoy the little playground and outdoor toys.

Foodsafe snacks are available for all participants and coffee and tea are provided for the parents.

We look forward to seeing you and your little ones. June 21 is the last day for P&T for the season and will return September 6. Please note that Parents and Tots follows the school schedule for School District 62.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Metchosin Community House has many fun events throughout the year that always rely on the volunteer support of our members, to which we are very grateful. We always place a callout

for volunteers at times of our largest fundraisers, but there are always other ways to become involved throughout the year that gives people the chance to be active and have fun in this wonderful community and creates the opportunity to meet some new friends as well. If you would like to become more involved in your community and lend a hand give us a call, we’d love to hear from you. 478-5155.
