Board Meetings

All parents are invited to attend our monthly board meetings. The Wildwood Playschool board is an excellent opportunity to meet new friends, have a more active role in your child’s first school experience, as well as have the opportunity to partake in priority registration for next year. For location, time and more information please contact president@wildwoodplayschool.ca

Playdough Recipe

  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 6 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups salt
  • 4 cups flour
  • 8 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • Food colouring

Add food colouring to the water. Mix all ingredients in a large saucepan until smooth on medium heat. Continue to cook and stir on a low heat until it forms a ball. Knead for 5 minutes on the counter. Let cool and then store in a large Ziploc bag or ice cream bucket.

Wildwood Playschool is Environmentally Conscious

We have a number of routines at Wildwood that support the Reduce/Reuse/Recycle theme.

We have a collection of reusable cloths for drying hands after messy work. Did you know we are saving more than 100 paper towels every two days? That would add up to more than 250 a week and more than 1000 a month and so on. Our parents wash the classroom cloths to enable us to have a supply available at all times.

We reuse fruit cups, paper towel rolls, plastic, yogurt containers, cardboard and many other collectables. We are reducing our need for some craft materials with this reusing.

Our efforts in reusing are exemplary. We also collect composting in the classroom to collect fruit and vegetable snack bits. This is all soooo important!! And we should be proud of our efforts!!
