Please follow link for our most recent update (Little Pumpkins Open Grand Opening)
Our Grand opening was a great success, with many families coming to look around our new facility. We were able to show the progress so far and explain the ‘exciting’ changes to come.
We were very lucky to have Jim Williams (the previous owner) and David Corkum (the Mayor of Kentville) join us to plant our new Peach tree and hence ‘sowing the seeds of love’ for our new era.
Sher, Kevin, Pebbles, Jim, Mayor Dave, Jenny and JJ.
Please come one and all to our Open House. April 21st from 11am – 2pm.
See our flyer for more info (open house flyer).
We will also be planting a tree to help mark this special occasion.
Little Pumpkins has finally found a home and is open.
We are so pleased to say that we opened our doors on Mon 2nd April. There has been a lot of hard work involved from friends and family in getting this center opened and the initial result is fabulous.
We have already had a lot of positive feed back from the kids and parents and look forward to all the changes that are on the horrizons.
We are holding our Open day on April 21st, more details to follow.
