OCF SEEKING INPUT FROM EDUCATORS FOR 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAMMING

June 25, 2020

Due to the current pandemic, and the many unknowns in the upcoming 2020-21 school year, the Ottawa Children’s Festival de la jeunesse would like to hear from educators about attending field trips and how we can best support you.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey. There is an option to comment after every question. All questions and comments will receive attention and may result in program changes to better meet your needs.

Survey closed.

Events

Our OCF Staff will be at Shop The Village in Westboro on May 14, 2022.  Be sure to pop by and see them at the Churchill Senior Centre parking lot (345 Richmond Rd) from 1pm to 4pm. You can purchase tickets to the Festival and win some prizes!  Sit in the OCF Big Red Chair, that makes everyone feel like a kid!
