Zero-Waste Spring Recap!

Our spring quest to save the environment - by measuring our consumption, and working to save resources - comes to a close this week, but of course, the quest continues. 

The summer program - Out of the Storm - is our emergence from the 18 months of pandemonia, and begins next week, but before we introduce the new season, we're introducing some of the new faces who will be helping bring it to life!

Our newest teachers, Dena Schertzer and Charlotte Blake, have been training at Storybook over the Spring, and will be putting in appearances as we ramp up for summer. 

And! Our online swap and store project has been operating for 2 months this week, and we're excited to present an update! First and foremost, we were approved for the Alacrity Online Launch Grant! Project coordinator Aida Soldevila has an update in hew new, new, newsletter, coming out later this week! And you can subscribe from the link in the post below!

Spring season recap!

The sun is shining, and we're getting ready to present the details of our new program (watch this space - next week!), but before we wrap up our Zero-Waste Spring, we check our progress!

This season, we tracked our electrical, water, and plastic consumption, and made some surprising discoveries!

Visit the blog to find out what we've learned, and what we'll be tackling next!

New teachers this summer!

The warm weather is calling, and we're so ready, with a sunny new face to introduce to you! 

Charlotte Blake has been training at our Storybook centre this spring, and applying her scientific approach to daycare teaching!

Researching, observing, experimenting, and drawing conclusions, she's learning what works (and what doesn't...) with the kids! Learning is nothing new for her, though! Charlotte discovered a love for development while pursuing her BSc. in Neurobiology at UBC, which she completed this spring! 

She'll be popping up at Broadway over the summer, bringing the magic to our new season! Find her bio, on the blog, and find all our teachers on our Staff Page. news! Grant application accepted!

We hope you've heard about our online swap for children's items - - but if not, no worries! There's plenty of time! Our online shop never closes!

Our 8-year running in-person semi-annual children's toy and clothing swap was bumped last year, but rather than closing it down for the second year in a row, in 2021, we jumped to the virtual world - and we love the results! 

Launched on Mar. 22, it's been operating for just two months, as one of the highest frequented online stores on Shopify! Project coordinator Aïda Soldevila will be sending out her second month update newsletter later this week with a big announcement! was recognized by the Alacrity Online Launch program, and awarded a grant of up to $5,600 for outreach and promotion! Signing up with is free, and all the items are just $2 - $5! Want to know more about this waste-reduction initiative? Register for the update today!
