Play School

Children who come to the nutrition program every day had nothing to do since there were no toys or play materials. Carroll’s idea for a play centre was sparked by this photo that she took in 2006.


Students from elementary schools in Houston, Topley, Decker Lake and Smithers, British Columbia raised funds to purchase play materials for the play centre.


In November 2008, Carroll met Noel Matinez, who is studying to become a pre-school/kindergarten/grade 1 teacher. He was interested in working as the play school teacher.


March 2009, Carroll was able to do some training with Noel. Here he is learning to do a block puzzle, something he’d never seen before. Noel started working with the children in April 2009.
