FCCC is proudly showing their support for the Humboldt Broncos today. All of our sites are participating in Jersey Day. Some sites are personalizing their tributes. We are proud to be Canadian and want the world to know that we CARE!


At FCCC Centennial our creative arts activity ‘accidentally’ turned into growing potatoes. While cleaning up from our potato stamp activity, some of the children suggested that we should compost the potatoes. This prompted research about composting and we found that we may be able to actually grow potatoes.


This month the toddlers have enjoyed pretending to paint each other’s faces and hair. This idea started when a couple of the children experienced face painting at a family event over the weekend. The children have been using objects from our loose parts bin for this pretend play. They have used such items as paint brushes, wooden blocks with coloured gems and small coloured foam noodles. With this play they have been learning wonderful social skills and turn taking. In the end we enjoyed some real face and body painting, although we actually painted our dolls rather than each other, well maybe we painted ourselves just a little bit too!


Over the past few months the kinder’s and school-aged children at FCCC Rideau P.S. have been exploring the use of loose parts, both inside and out. They have been testing their theories when building and constructing works of art.  They are also discovering which pieces work together and discovering which one’s don’t.



The LCVI preschool room has been making many connections. The children have been examining their environment and taking notice of the nature around them.

They have also found many exciting ways to use the loose parts to create new things, and to display their creativity and curiosity.

Our preschoolers were excited to decorate our room for the holidays. They still take delight in moving the decorations around on our Christmas tree.
