New SMS Equipment Child Mind hours to take effect October 1
(Fort McMurray, AB, September 12, 2012) – MacDonald Island Park is adjusting the hours of operation at SMS Equipment Child Mind effective Monday, October 1.
The new hours of operation are a reflection of peak times for facility use at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre, specifically the Total Fitness Centre and fitness programs. Due to community demand, SMS Equipment Child Mind will also become the home to children’s birthday parties and the ever-growing Mi Little Academy program.
Beginning on Monday, October 1, SMS Equipment Child Mind hours (for child minding services) will be the following:
· Monday to Thursday: 8:30 am-1:00 pm; 4:00 pm-8:00 pm
· Friday: 8:30 am-1:00 pm
· Saturday: 10:00 am-2:00 pm
· Sunday and statutory holidays: Closed
Mi Little Academy programs will run from Monday to Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., while birthday party bookings will be available on Friday (4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.) and Saturday (2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.).
“As a not-for-profit organization, it is important we adjust the hours to best reflect community usage and need,” said Jodie Mercier, General Manager, Sport and Recreation at MacDonald Island Park. “With the popularity of Mi Little Academy programs and children’s birthday parties on the rise we felt it was time to move these services and programs to SMS Equipment Child Mind on a more permanent basis.”
