Community Partnership in Rideau Heights

On Wednesdays from April 25 through May 30, drop in to jump, skip, hop and more in our active program, Play to Learn. Through play-based activities and interactive books, children two years and up will develop their physical confidence.

Following Play to Learn, participate in Loving Spoonful's free Cooking With Families program (11 a.m. - 1 p.m.).  Parents and kids will learn how to make easy, healthy, affordable recipes together. Take home meals or ingredients after each workshop! To register for the Cooking with Families program, contact Thea at 613-507-8848. Cooking with Families will not run on May 23 and 30.
