Stella loves to colour, and Duncan loves science and likes to play with his friends.

Activity you most love to do in the fall / winter, together?

We have two labradoodles, Millie and Ruby. We take lots of dog walks and enjoy a lot of park time.

Both Stella and Duncan like to go to the pool with their dad. The Tri Leisure Centre in Spruce Grove is one of our favourite family spots!

Kepler Academy Tip:

Here’s an awesome new children’s recipe book, Kids Cooking Ideas, written by The Kids Nutritionist! The book is sold locally and comes with a bonus pancake mix. Co-created by Leah Hackney, local Paediatric Dietician, and Dr. Stephanie Liu, a.k.a Dr. Mom.

Best place in your city/community to visit?

We love the parks in Spruce Grove. Especially Jubilee Park, as we live very close by.

What is the best part about being at Kepler Academy?

The fun and care of all who attend. The supportive environment provided has been a wonderful benefit for our family. Both Stella and Duncan get to have fun and learn new things from friends everyday. Kepler is a strong positive community that we are happy and blessed to be a part of.

Thank you so much, Ricki, Graham, Duncan and Stella!
