We moved to Canada last October, and because of Covid we did not get many opportunities to go out of our home and meet new people.
This Community Garden is helping us spend some time outside of our home, meet our neighbors, and enjoy some family moments. 
And seeing the sprouts coming out of their seeds always brings so much joy.
The utter normalcy in these plants’ growth gives us hope that our lives will someday, in the near future, become normal again!
— Kallyan, Ethila, and Elika

The Mooney’s Bay Childcare Centre is on track for completion by the end of the year, but the community sponsorship program has been extended to assist with pandemic-related construction cost increases.

Residents are invited to immortalize their support by buying an engraved brick that will be installed along the childcare centre’s public, multi-use pathway. All donations come with a charity tax receipt and will help create a more inclusive community for new families.

The Mooney’s Bay Childcare Centre will host 88 children at 2826 Springland Dr.
