Update September 1, 2014: School will definitely not be in session tomorrow (sigh). Parents wishing to apply for the $40/day subsidy for school-aged children 12 and younger can click here to register. Have your school district (#44 in North Van) and your child’s PEN number, found on their report card, on hand.


Original Post:

Well, Vince Ready left the bargaining table on Saturday afternoon, with no plans to schedule further talks until the teachers’ union and the government are willing to start moving closer together. So we’ll pass along any day camp or childcare news that comes our way in case there’s no resolution by Tuesday; for even more timely publication we invite companies or babysitters to post directly on our LynnValleyLife Facebook page, where their posts will appear in a column to the left of our main news feed.


Added September 14/14: All-day art classes at Lynn Valley’s Doodlebug Art Studio, with local resident Jeri Engen, look fantastic. Check them out on her Classes page!
