Nutrition at Creating Together
As the saying goes, “the family that eats together, stays together!” We believe that good eating starts at home, and we aim to support parents and caregivers with ideas on how to eat healthily as a family.
Enjoy a nutritious Snack Time with us, at 11:00am every day.
To learn more about how to promote healthy eating habits, come to one of our healthy eating workshops facilitated by a highly qualified Public Health Nurse.
Please note that Creating Together is a nut-free facility.
Storytime takes place every day before 11:00am. Parents and caregivers are welcome to bring a special book from home that can be shared during this time.
A curated selection of books are available for families to explore at all times in the centre, and a variety of children’s books can be borrowed for use at home through our Resource Lending Library.
Early Years Physical Activity and Movement Program
Get moving with Creating Together! This exercise and movement program provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers to participate together. Children learn to build on many skills including listening, singing, movement and participation. This program supports each child’s fine and gross motor skills through simple exercises and concepts like using cards with pictures to demonstrate different exercise poses, parachute play, and scarf dancing.
This program is aligned with the City of Toronto’s Rainbow Fun Guide – a physical activity and healthy eating program for children 3 to 6 years. The Rainbow Fun Guide includes information and interactive activities for child care providers, educators and parents that do not require expensive equipment, making it easy for parents and caregivers to do the routines at home with their children.
Parents and caregivers are welcome to donate gently used children’s clothing and use the clothing exchange during program hours.
*This program is currently on hold due to COVID-19.
We do many day trips and outings to attractions in and around Toronto. These special trips give us a chance for our community to expand horizons, experience something new, and make new memories.
Trips and special outings each year can include:
- Apple picking at Chudleigh’s Farm (Milton)
- Ontario Science Centre
- Bronte Creek Conservation Park (Oakville)
- Strawberry picking at Downey’s Farm (Caledon)
- Metro Toronto Zoo and more!
These outings offer families access to attractions at a much reduced rate, often subsidized by the centre’s fundraising efforts. Creating Together also arranges for transportation to and from these attractions.
You can sign up for a trip by visiting us at the centre or by filling out this form. Please note that priority will be given to member families that frequently attend Creating Together.
Celebrations and Community Events
We come together as a community to celebrate occasions such as Black History Month, Family Day, International Women’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Literacy Day, and seasonal holidays such as Chinese New Year, Tibetan New Year, Easter, and Christmas.
All Creating Together member families are welcome to attend our Annual Summer Picnic. The Picnic gives us an opportunity to celebrate another fun-filled year of family programming before the summer break.
