Nesbitt: Cabane a Sucre

Friday, March 23, 2018 was a school pedagogical day, and Nesbitt Daycare took the opportunity to visit the Chalet des Erables in Sainte Anne des Plaines, for yet another year of sugar shacking.

As our bus pulled up to the premises on that beautiful spring morning, the excited cries of our students were met by the welcoming and friendly staff who separated us into groups on a day that promised to be fun filled and sugary sweet.

Our first stop of the day was at the amusement rides. The children and staff excitedly boarded the rides, which they remembered from prior years, and were pleasantly surprised and eager to try the new ones!

After about an hour of spinning and careening, our monitors ushered us into the dining hall for a delicious and traditional meal of eggs, potatoes, sausages and sweet maple desserts!

With our stomachs full and satisfied, we spent the remainder of the afternoon visiting the animals on the farm; taking a leisurely train ride through the maple orchards; visiting a haunted house and, of course, ending it all off with the delicious tire sur la neige.

All in all we had a wonderful day made even more so by the beautiful weather, and all this was evidenced by the quiet bus ride back to school!
