School District #47 contributes to "Ages and Stages"- an interactive preschool fun day that takes place at the Powell River Recreation Complex. It is a collaborative effort of the Building Blocks Committee 0-5; members are from agencies and services that serve the preschool population. Theme centres are set up on the top floor of the Complex. Preschoolers and their parents/caregivers enter and register for the event. At registration the family gets a book bag, a developmental questionnaire appropriate for the age of the child, and a map of the upper level of the complex showing where each centre is. Preschoolers and their parent/caregiver can choose the order they visit each centre. Centre themes include: Health/Hand-washing, Hearing/Vision/Dental, Communication, Social-Emotional/ Reading-Relaxation, Fine Motor/Problem-solving, Gross-motor and Nutrition. This event usually takes place in the spring.
