Yellowhead Community Services (YCS) celebrates community partnerships at open house

The event featured musical performances by the children in both care groups operated by YCS

Yellowhead Community Services (YCS) held its annual open house for Building Blocks Daycare and Eagle’s Nest last week at its location on Park Drive.

The event featured musical performances by the children in both care groups and celebrates community partnerships YCS has with various other organizations in the community.

“It really brings the YCS community together,” said Susanne Butcher, manager of Early Childhood Development Services at YCS.

“The Building Blocks Daycare children were the first children to perform and they did some traditional Christmas songs, then Eagle’s Nest children, they came and they sang some songs that are in Salish.”

Butcher added though the songs sung in Salish by the Eagle’s Nest children weren’t about Christmas, they about celebration and being thankful.

As Eagle’s Nest is a new program, this marks the first year its children participated in the open house celebrations, which have been happening for more than 10 years.
