Recreation Penticton has enrolled a new mascot at Bugaboo University, and they’re looking for help to give it a name.

The winning submission will receive a Recreation Penticton family prize pack which includes free passes to the pool, and residents of all ages are welcome to take part.

The mascot was designed as “a cute, cuddly and smart bug who loves to read, paint and bake,” according to a press release from the city, and its gender will be assigned by the winning submission.

The deadline is July 1, and entries can be sent to rec@penticton.ca.

Students who attend Bugaboo University are between the ages of three and five, and get a fun head start on literacy, art, math and science. To find out what the Bugaboo University is about, the school is having an open house on June 18 between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Parents and children will be able to take a tour, meet the faculty and check out the bright new learning lab, which has become the new “epicentre of campus life.”

Spaces are open now for classes in the fall. Learn more by contacting 250-490-2426 or www.penticton.ca/recreation.

As Penticton’s newest early childhood learning centre for three to five-year-olds, Bugaboo University offers an emergent style curriculum to ensure class room success for kindergarten.
