If you're looking for fun, interactive programs for your kids to do after school, or over summer and winter breaks, Cathy offers play-based programs at Trout Lake and Douglas Park community centres.


Kids will get to expand their creativity and connection with nature through innovative programs that combine art, writing and out-in-nature exploration. Her programs are great for kids that are new to creative expression as well as those who have already tapped into their natural abilities.


Early Childhood 


Creative Play - 4-6 years  

Play sets the stage for children to explore, experiment and be creative! From sharing stories to kitchen play, building to art activities, connecting to each other and nature, there’s never a dull moment.  The small group size makes this program a great stepping stone to kindergarten.
