Vaccines, and STAYING calm, kind, and safe.

Don't you love it when a plan works out much better than expected? We can't take credit for this week's amazing spring weather, but last week, we launched our afternoon Park Days, and the timing was just perfect!

In fact, all of our Spring Programs and plans are aligning!

As you may have seen, instances of COVID-19, especially a more contagious variant, are rising, but while the transmission rate, and hospitalizations, are climbing, health officials remain optimistic about a bright and beautiful summer! Here's why:

1. Outside activities are the safest way to spend your time! 

The sun is calling and gatherings of up to 10 people outside are allowed, especially with your core group - like your friends at daycare! So we have increased the spots in the afternoons, and are planning to have picnic snacks, longer walks, and fun and games.

Don't forget to send a hat, and apply sunscreen before you arrive for a quicker exit ;) 

2. Inside, ventilation is key!  

Spring weather runs hot and cold, and can be wet, but we don't worry about it at Buddings! Both centres are climate controlled, and air circulated, year round, for optimal comfort and safety. 

3. We only have a few more months to STAY the COURSE!

Proper, thorough handwashing, wearing masks, and staying home when sick are STILL the best ways to prevent transmission. On this point, we offer a huge 


to all the families that have been following protocols for the past year and more!

Thank you for keeping your kids home when they're not well. Thank you for sharing health info. And thank you for your kind consideration for the kids and teachers at Buddings!

We accept bookings and cancellations with one hour's notice, by phoning the centre on the day. Call us after 8:45am if you need to cancel due to illness, potential illness, or just to stay home to be safe. Find our sickness policy here.

Your hours can be unbooked, to use when the situation improves. There is no penalty for transferring hours into future months for any of these reasons. :)

BC Vaccination Schedule
- everyone eligible by July!

Information about the vaccination eligibility for front line workers was released, retracted, and resumed this week, but regardless of the priority list, it looks like all British Columbians will be eligible by July. Those 40 and over can register here for an appointment starting today, and the BC Centre for Disease Control has a dashboard with relevant stats about transmission and vaccination rates.

The Buddings teachers have been keeping their circles extremely small, avoiding exposure, and staying close to home, and even after vaccinations, we'll be maintaining masks and social distance for the future, and our frequent handwashing... forever!
