Improved toddler playground re-opens

Submitted by Terrie Dionne-A new pre-school play structure has been installed at the Queen Charlotte City Community Centre! Completed on Friday July 15, the new play structure is larger, with a wider variety of activities than the original structure. The structure is designed to provide children two to five years old with both creative and physical options for entertainment.
The installation of the new play structure was made possible through the efforts of Queen Charlotte Child Center volunteers who applied and received funding for the project through the Ministry of Children and Family Development’s Capital Funding/Safe Play Space Program and the Gwaii Trust.
“This whole initiative has been a learning experience,” says Sonja Efford, who led the team that made the play structure a reality. “The most satisfying aspect will be watching and hearing the children enjoy themselves on and around the new structure”.
The play structure was purchased from and installed by Swing Time Distributors Ltd. of North Vancouver, BC with supporting materials purchased from local suppliers – Skidegate Inlet Construction and K&K Carpets.
Community Club president Lee-Al Nelson says “The Community Club supported the Child Center’s efforts and applauds the results. The new piece of equipment adds a new dimension to our community, we encourage all families with little ones to come and try it out.”
