Pete the Cat is back, and he’s inviting children 3-5 (and their parents) to learn about kindergarten at Oceanside Place on April 19.
The free event features displays and information from various community resources, including kindergarten teachers, who have all collaborated to provide the fun event for preschool-aged children.
While a postcard from Pete the Cat was mailed to all children registered for fall 2018 kindergarten in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area, all kids ages 3-5 are invited to attend the meet and greet event.
Arts and crafts activities are included, as well as the opportunity to get a picture taken with Pete, climb aboard a real school bus, and get a bag of ideas and snacks to take home.
The event takes place Thursday, April 19 at Oceanside Place (830 Island Hwy. W. in Parksville) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The event is funded by Ready, Set, Learn — Ministry of Education and administered locally by Oceanside Building Learning Together (OBLT).
