50 Years of Service (Early Childhood Milestone)
It is a milestone year for The Woodland Nursery location of Warden Woods. 50 years ago in 1966, Woodland Nursery School began serving this community. It was the first programme of what would later become Warden Woods Community Centre. Although we closed the Nursery School in 2011, we have continued to provide early childhood services at the 1 Firvalley location and at our expanded locations at 3485 Birchmount Road. We’ve got a lot to celebrate in this golden year for the programme so stay tuned for opportunities to join us in remembering and imagining a future for early childhood programmes at Warden Woods. Since our last publication, we have been extremely busy at Warden Woods.
We have undergone restructuring of two departments, creating 2 additional departments to help improve our efficiency and effectiveness in managing the agency. The new structure includes a department of Finance focused on managing our financial resources, a department of IT and Operations focused on building maintenance and Technology services, the Community Development department with a renewed focus on community relations with the addition of a Community Relations Administrator, a Health and Recreation Services department focused on Seniors nutrition,transportation and recreation services and a Health Outreach and Support department focused on helping seniors to live independently. In this issue, you will hear more from each of the departments about the impact they are having on our community building efforts.
As we look to our political leadership, we are encouraged by the focus on poverty reduction and Warden Woods supports many initiatives for housing improvement, hunger, minimum wage increases, job and entrepreneurship for community members. In early April we launched our mini-microloan programme thankfully supported by ACCESS Capital and KPMG. #Peace4Scarborough will be active again with our annual walk and BBQ planned for Wednesday June 15th, 2016 starting from 6 pm to 8 pm. Please join us for a day of peace,when we will reaffirm our commitment to creating a peaceful community by asking, WHAT CAN YOU DO TO BRING PEACE TO YOUR COMMUNITY?
