Scout Island Nature Centre is working to fill some of the child care gap left by the teacher strike.

The Nature Centre will be providing care an activities for children ages six to 13 from September 3 until students and teachers are back in class.

The time will be 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Children will need to bring lunch and snacks and wear appropriate clothes and good walking/running shoes. Students will be outside exploring, playing games, and learning about all the life at Scout Island. There will also be writing, art and maybe even some math to do, says Sue Hemphill.

The fee is $40 a day if government comes through with the promised stipend, or $25 per day otherwise.

Call 250-398-8532 or e-mail shemphill @netbistro.com to find out if there are spaces still available.
