The outside area of the SIGN Early Learning Centre was in need of nurturing and improvement, leading to The Rubber Trails Project.
The project consists of laying a rubber bike path and sitting area, with the goal to cut down the amount of dust, better ability to organize spending time in the outdoors, and for all the children to have specific areas for toys and activities. It will make the outside area more user friendly for the children, and aesthetically pleasing, ELC Acting Director Patricia Kennedy says.
The Rubber Trails Project took it first major steps in late May with the installation of a rubber pathway -- a bike path and sitting area. As well, sod has been placed by the gazebo in early June.
The work was made possible by a grant of $6,000 from the Painted Hand Community Development Corporation (PHCDC) which covered the cost of the rubber trail. The work was done by A1 Rubber Paving of Regina, which also provided additional work at no cost, including a small track in the grass for the kids' small cars. A donation towards the project was also received from Cornerstone Credit Union.
There are plans for a second phase which will include more ground covering at the sand box and bike path, a planter, and storage boxes. Fundraising for phase 2 is starting, with the hope that the work can be completed by summer next year.
