Welcome to the Central Valley Homeschoolers blog. We've created this blog to help homeschoolers stay connected, and as a place to announce upcoming field trips or other activities. If you would like to host an event or organize an activity, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to email us and we'll be sure to post all events as they are brought to our attention. We will also be posting activities that might interest the homeschooling community. If you are aware of any events that you haven't seen mentioned here, please let us know and we'll be sure to post it. Keep us bookmarked us and check back often. All our events are also listed on Facebook in the Annapolis Valley Homeschoolers group. Comments and suggestions are always welcome!

Wednesday Playgroup


Wednesday, April 4 - 10am - Spring in the park. I love getting the kids outside in all weather and to start off the month we will meet in the Port Williams park for outdoor play, running, biking, road hockey, kite flying, boat floating and just general muddy fun. Rain or shine. All ages welcome, please B.Y.O.Kite (or whatever outdoor activity suits you best).

Wednesday, April 11 - 10am - Live Concert! The much anticipated, Niamah and Andy Webster are over their laryngitis and are ready to sing with us at Ocean Spirit Studio. http://www.oceanspiritstudio.com/ This is also the date for our Spring Swap. This is where we all bring our old toys, clothes and other items to share with each other. Bring whatever you want, take whatever you can use and whatever is left over is donated to Chrysalis House's outreach program.

Wednesday, April 18 - 10am - Fish hatchery tour. We meet at 2550 Fish Hatchery Road in Coldbrook. Programs delivered at the Coldbrook facility include research on the “endangered" Atlantic White fish, live gene banking in support of Nova Scotia Salmon stocks either “endangered" or at risk of expiration because of unusually low marine survival and/or acid precipitation in fresh water. Scientific and Technical staff of the Fish Division are responsible for research, assessment and free passage of fish stocks inhibiting New Brunswick and Nova Scotia rivers flowing to the Bay of Fundy and Nova Scotia Rivers flowing directly into the Atlanic Ocean.
