2018-2019 Registration

Hello Everyone!

Registration forms will be available for the school year 18-19 on Wed, Jan. 31.  Registration forms will be accepted starting Feb. 1, 2018.  There is also a separate form for additional care requests.

Each family will have the same care that they are currently registered for.  You may apply to increase your care.  Reminder, having a part time spot does not entitle your family to a full time spot should one become available.  The wait list for full time spots is extensive and the OBEY Board will oversee how each spot is offered to ensure that the wait list and priority policies are followed.  For detailed information about the process, please visit the “Registration” tab.

Registration and additional care forms will be accepted until Feb. 23, 2018.  Following that date, in order of the wait list, current families will be offered any available spots.  My goal is to finish this process by mid-March so families that unfortunately do not receive their choice of care have time to make alternate arrangements.

If you know that you will not be using your current spot for 18-19, please let me know as soon as possible, by email or in handwriting.

Thank you!

Leanne Derlago

OBEY Director

Fundraising Success

We would like to extend a huge “Thank You” to all of our OBEY families who supported our fall fundraisers.  With your hard work and support, we raised $1080 on Bothwell Cheese sales, and $1770 on the Tiber River sales.

All of your hard work on these two fundraisers will immediately benefit our OBEY students as the funds have been allocated towards classroom art supplies and projects, books, toys, and games.

Great work everyone, and thank you for your continued support.

Email Scam Alert!

Hello parents.  Please be advised that there is an email scam currently targeting some OBEY parents.  Administration is looking into and addressing the issue, however you may have received, or may in the future receive, an email that appears to come from Leanne Derlago that requests funds or donations to be deposited in an account.  DO NOT reply to this email for follow any links to deposit or transfer funds.  Please do forward any such email you received to Leanne so that we may examine the full extent of the issue.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We thank you in advance for your attention to this serious matter and apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

Lunch Program

Once again this year OBEY will offer periodic lunches through the Oak Bluff Community School’s Lunch Program.  The Home & School Committee offers regular lunches for the student population, catered by local restaurants such as Mongos, Roxys and Subway.  The forms for the first set of lunches is found under the “Parents Information” tab.  Payment and forms are due on Friday, September 29th.

April 23rd to 29th is ECE Week!

The Week of the Early Childhood Educator was established by Manitoba Child Care Association in 1992.  The celebration is intended to recognize the valuable work of those who “care for a living” by providing early childhood education, family support, and a service that contributes to the social and economic development of our province.   It has been proclaimed annually by the Minister of Family Services, Government of Manitoba.

Whether you work in an early learning and child care centre or a family child care home the Week of the ECE is a celebration of the important work we do with children and their families.

We invite you to join the OBEY Board of Directors in wishing our OBEY staff a happy and wonderful ECE Week, and to thank our staff for their hard work, dedication and support of our children and OBEY families.  THANK YOU!!!
