Wow, June is here! Did that sneak up on anyone else?! This school year has just blown by and It is amazing how much we have achieved in only ten months.
We recently completed our Light On Afterschool events with huge success! Our message reached all the way to the top, and Premiere Notley is expected to address the Afterschool community over this next month, but we need to keep the message alive- Afterschool programs are important for our communities and for families and should be recognized by the Alberta Government as a priority during social project planning and childcare conversations.
TOPP KIDS has been very active as an advocate for Afterschool programs in Alberta and is helping spearhead conversations with government, education, and public sectors. This last year was busy working in partnership with groups like SACDA (School Age Care Directors Association), 2000 Days, Bow Valley and Mount Royal. In keeping ahead of changes happening in the Child Care field, TOPP KIDS is in the unique position to pilot many new programs, increasing the quality we provide constantly.
Children, parents, and staff working together as a community remains the one greatest strength of TOPP KIDS. Thankyou for being part of our TOPP KIDS family this past year and for contributing all that you do to each of our programs.
I recently completed my annual owner's operations review of all the programs and I have to say that I was blown away at every school and am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished so far... I love looking through the years photo albums, programming, getting to chat with families and to be honest, I was not expecting the sheer amount of compliments we received from parents and schools about our programs and the relationships they have built.... I want to sincerely say thank you to everyone that has been part of the TOPP KIDS family this last year!
I want to also extend huge praise to our teams. Without you, TOPP KIDS would not be what it is today! You all are so innovative, caring, professional and you truly do pour your hearts and souls into the work you do with the children! We are a family, as cheesy as it can be, and I truly appreciate you and your commitment to making TOPP KIDS the BEST Afterschool Program for families! THANK YOU for making the dream a reality!
