Parent volunteers design and build much-needed storage-benches for outdoor play space

You are here


Thanks to our wonderful parent volunteers, the storage benches have increased the functionality of the childcare outdoor play space. 

Located along the Queensway near the Sunnyside Boardwalk, CDI’s Windermere Early Learning Centre provides childcare for up to 57 children ranging from a few months old to age four.

As part of the Parent Advisory Committee, parent volunteers designed and built much-needed seating/activities benches with storages spaces for toys. The construction team of past and present parents includes Costas, Paul, Jerry, David and Audry, who worked on the weekends—rain or shine—to make this happen. In addition, we extend a big thank you to Downtown Lumber (who provided building materials at low cost) for their contribution to this project).

“The pre-school playground benches are now completed, and we hope to complete the toddler and infant benches this spring,” says April Chang, Centre Director. “We are still looking for a few more parent volunteers to help us complete the infant/toddler benches.”

Families are important partners at CDI’s Early Learning Centres. We welcome parent feedback and parent involvement through voluntary participation on each of the Centre’s Parent Advisory Committees.
