    Ottawa area providers

    Moving our chatting to a new place.

    Would love to have a chance to meet anyone in the Ottawa area. I am in Orleans - Fallingbrook (Merkley/Charlemagne). Maybe others in the area could say where they are located so we can find out who lives near what.

    I know some of us at least are members of CCPRN so maybe you could indicate when you check in if you are a member or not. Not that that is a criteria for getting together but it would give us a common location for those that are.

    You YOW ladies are very lucky, I wish most cities would fund this program. I hope your all taking advantage. Great way to get together! The workshops sound great as well!

    Sorry chatting by email here on the forum.

    At one point the CCPRN had some funding from the government to help mentor groups of providers in other cities get an organization going and that is how the London group actually started many years ago now. Not sure if they still do but they are a great bunch of ladies and if you asked them might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Basically you need to collect the names of a few ladies that want to form a group and then to start you can meet in each other's homes and share crafts, recipes, discuss how to deal with issues like late payments, teething babies, whatever. It is part social part continuing education but for sure it is supportive and makes the job easier just knowing there are like minded people out there.

    Hello everyone,
    I am located in Orleans as well (near the intersection of Orleans blvd and St-Joseph).
    I opened my french daycare in June 2010 and I am loving it. I have a 2 1/2 year old son and a 7 month old daughter. I am caring for 5 kids (two school aged).
    I am not a ccprn member but considering joining shortly.
    When the forum initially started I was on it quite a bit but got quite busy/tired after having my daughter and stopped coming on... I am happy to say i am now taking the time!

    Naftafia glad to hear you are settling into a better pattern. Those first few months can be really crazy when we have other kids to worry about too and not just the new baby. There are at least three of us from Orleans and a couple from Gloucester area as well as further west. Will be nice to connect with everyone. The CCPRN does offer some of their services in French including a couple pages of poems/songs in each newsletter as well at some workshops there is a French handout available - sort of depends on who is presenting. Mine are all English since I do not speak French at all but others might be presented in English but the handout is available in either language.

    hello sharon,

    for some reason i ended up in this website.
    this is angelina - CCPRN member and member of Ottawa Plantcycle group in facebook.
    I would like to come to your workshop someday, i am signed in for the nov. 3 workshop and ELECT worskhop 2 weeks after that.

    I am in the South Keys area, and I have a bunch of 4-or 5 caregivers which we meet regularly in the park outdoors. We do crafts together, we share resources: chalk, sandtoys. I think 3 of us are members of CCPRN.

    Hi Angelina, welcome to this forum. Love what you share on plantcycle too. Just wish my gardens weren't so embarrassing. It is for sure a work in progress. We did get new stone sidewalks and driveway done in the last couple of weeks so now I at least know where the gardens start and stop.

    I am doing workshops on Nov 29 at the CCPRN office. Morning is a dress up snowman for Christmas season and afternoon is the figures for Night Before Christmas. The Nov 3 is the Warm Up to Winter conference day right. I may have my felt set up there for sale over the lunch hour - still to be confirmed - so for sure stop by and introduce yourself.

    Take some time to look around this forum as there is some really good information that has been shared. This is a great bunch of ladies willing to answer any question you might have.
