Fall 2014 President's Message

After the leisure of summer, September is always the time to reconnect to those recreational programs that you love or recommit to new ones that broaden your interests or help you to achieve a better level of fitness.
Your community centre Board and staff have put together a large selection of programs in the areas of: recreation sports, wellness, and performing arts. Visit our friendly staff, browse our brochure, or visit us online at www.marpoleoakridge.org to see what is on offer. If you have any suggestions for new programs do not hesitate to pass along your ideas to the front counter staff.

On a sad note Karen Grant the community centre’s recreation supervisor is moving to Sunset Community Centre. Karen has been with us for the past 8 yrs. and it is an understatement to say that she will be missed. Karen has been crucial in keeping the centre running in a friendly efficient welcoming manner that has benefited all. She has been a steady, dedicated, extraordinary supervisor. We all wish her only the best.

In my previous message to you I had noted that Park Board had assured us that the remaining funds necessary to renew the community centre would be placed in this upcoming capital plan. (50% of the necessary funds were approved in the last municipal elections). We have just learned that the remaining funds required for Marpole-Oakridge community centre’s renewal are not part of the City’s new capital plan. City hall did not phone to tell us of this decision; they did not write or email; they did not ask us to attend a meeting. We found out about this shocking change by reading it in the newspaper. There was no consultation and we were never informed of this arbitrary decision. Park Board staff and parks board managers were also not informed and they also found out through the newspaper. I have been given no explanation for this but continue to ask for one. At one time, parks board had a participatory process for making decisions of this type, but now, such decision making has been taken over by city hall. This new way of making decisions appears to lack both transparency and consultation. We are disappointed and bewildered by city hall and this decision. Renewal of the Marpole-Oakridge community centre had been given priority status within the parks board system and we thought it was also a priority at city hall. Somehow that priority status has changed. The Marpole-Oakridge Community Association Board will continue to promote community centre renewal and its legitimacy to be included in this capital plan.

The Marpole-Oakridge Community Association Board is a volunteer group, we encourage all community members to become part of MOCA by volunteering on the Board or on the Program, Youth, or Renewal committees.

Yours in befuddlement
Norman Zottenberg – president MOCA

Marpole-Oakridge Preschool
 

Marpole Preschool 604-257-8180 is recognized in the Early Childcare Education field as a leader and now has limited spots available for parents who want their child to experience play-based learning in a safe, caring environment.

Marpole Preschool provides a play-based program that implements emergent curriculum inspired by Reggio Emilia preschools in Italy. We develop our curriculum by observing what and how children play and by listening closely to their voices. Based on observations, we provide an experience or materials that guides children to further explore their interests and what they want to discover. We then make further observation and provide further experiences, and this cycle goes on to support children's learning.

We believe children are competent, resourceful, creative, and curious!

We support children's individual learning as well as encourage collaborative learning through sharing ideas and working together.
We are looking forward to working with your child and you, the guardians, as a team!
