Do something courageous this year!

This Labour Day, every permanent British Columbian resident over the age of 12 has a chance to become the premier of the province, if they have a genuine interest in serving as leader of the BC NDP.

What an opportunity! 

Even if you're not a member now, if you join by Sept. 4, with a minimum $10 donation, YOU could submit an application for the leadership race. Voting starts Nov. 13 for all registered members and it only takes one minute to buy your ballot online. The donation is even 75% tax deductible.

Plus! In a bid to remove barriers to diverse candidates stepping up, the party is offering grants of up to $10,000 to help pay for registration fees and other expenses. 

Get ready to change the world!


Do you even want to be premier? Do you have the rest of the funds? The personality? The 70 - 80 hours a week for campaigning between now and then? ... A vision?

Since 32-year-old Anjali Appadurai stepped forward on Aug. 10 with all of the above - a vision based on climate action, housing and security, and a more just society - you don't have to!

Only registered members of the BCNDP can make this choice (estimated 10,000 - 20,000), and while Buddings loves Appadurai's vision for a "strong, politically courageous, managed decline of the fossil fuel industry," if that's not your bag, being a member of the party this week also gives you a voice in upholding the status quo.

Her only opponent so far (there's still time to put your hat in ;), is the heavy favourite David Eby, a lawyer and BC's longest serving Attorney General, and Housing Minister, who's help she will certainly need to meet her social welfare pledges. 

She'll be at Britannia Community Centre tomorrow at 5pm to explain her platform, and you can attend! Click here to register for the picnic.

This isn't about party lines. They are on the same team, and one of them will be the new premier of BC as we navigate the coming climate challenges and opportunities. Have a say!

At daycare, we teach the kids that they can be anything, do anything, and have a chance to make the world a better place. This week, by joining the BCNDP party by Sept. 4, you really can!

Um... What about Big Kids Club?

We also teach them about nature, sustainability, and their value as a person in society, through our afternoon program for preschoolers, Big Kids Club! ... smooth transition, right? :)

Starting Sept. 6, classes will be running 2 - 3 times a week at each centre from 1 - 4pm, and you can email us to save 10% off the 24 hour package when you commit to afternoon attendance. 

The theme for the season is All About Me, and you can find Codie's 1 week count down post on the blog.

Buddings Big Kids Club is the flexible preschool program!

With 101 options, from academic to arts-based, choosing preschool can get complicated.... but it doesn't have to be!

The same dynamic learning, and friendly faces that your children love at daycare are also teaching preschool, and you can save 10% when you commit to attend
twice a week! 


Our amazing 1:4 ratio, to support learning and development for alllll our little friends (compared to 1:10, at most "preschools").
