Lonsdale Creek Daycare holds two Saturday work parties per year: one in the spring and the other in the fall.

At least one parent per family must attend each Saturday work party. Parents are responsible for arranging an alternate (family member, friend, babysitter or maid service) to attend the work party in their place should they be unable to attend.
