Drop In Programs – Summer 2014

Drop In Programs – Summer 2014

School in Ridge Meadows has come to an (early) end for the year, which means that many of the regular weekly programs for preschoolers, toddlers and babies have also come to a close.  Let's stay positive though - the weather has improved and more activities are being held outdoors!!  There are many new and exciting ways to engage your children this summer.

Here's what's happening around Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows on a regular, weekly basis for the next couple of months.  If you want to receive updates on special events please join our Facebook page and if you like what you see please help spread the word about Kids in the Ridge within our community!
