The school year is coming to a close and your little scholar can’t wait for his or her summer freedom. If your child is like most, that summer freedom buzz lasts for a few weeks at best before they start moaning “I’m bored! There’s nothing to do!” Well, good news: the City of Regina is offering a boredom buster summer drop in program called PlayEscapes. PlayEscapes is a FREE come and go program for children entering Kindergarten (must be 5 years old by December 31, 2010) through Grade 7. The program runs Monday through Friday, July 5 to August 13 (no program August 2), from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon and 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Self-directed play is the key to the PlayEscapes program. Children engage in play they select by themselves, and are encouraged to explore and discover activities they enjoy most. Through self-directed play, children become more active and creative in the play environment while gaining a sense of freedom and choice. PlayEscapes welcomes children and youth with disabilities. Participants who may need assistance during the program are required to bring an attendant. The site location closest to the Lakeview area is the South Leisure Center, 170 Sunset Drive. Please contact REACH at 347-3224 for more information or to find other site locations.
