Super current

Summer is right around the corner and that means a slight slowdown in programs at YPSN. Regular Monday drop in has finished for the year, but please come to one of the regular Saanich Neighbourhood Place drop ins on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings in the SNP playroom! Staff are available all summer for outreach appointments and support, and watch this space for info about our fabulous summer picnics:

Featured YPSN profile

We asked her: tell us three things about you, the first three things that come to mind:

1. I love my amazing five year old.

2. I love scrapbooking

3. I love learning new things and being outside.

What is your role?

My role is secretary of the board, as well as helping out editing the YPSN website!

What is your favourite thing about YPSN?

There are too many to mention, but the staff are absolutely amazing, as well as everyone who comes to YPSN. I love the non judgmental, open mindedness of everyone. The children who come into YPSN are pretty amazing too!

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I was born in St Albert, but raised here in Victoria BC

I have 3 children: Brooklyn (5) and two step children, Audrey (5) and Tyson (3)

I am completing the Community child and family studies as of December 2015 and am excited to see where that brings me!
