Family Resource Programs
Drop-in Playgroups allow parents and/or caregivers and young children to come together in an unstructured environment to play together, meet new friends, gain new skills, and share ideas.
Come with your child and enjoy the excitement of playing dress-up, building a tower, or having a tea party. Let your child experience the fun of painting, gluing and working with sand and water.
We offer a number of programs designed for specific age groups. These programs provide a variety of activities that parents and/or caregivers and children can enjoy together.
Some examples of parent-child interactive programs include:
On our Way (Kindergarten readiness program)
Fun with Fairytales
Adventures in Science
Cooking with Kids
Parent-Child Mother Goose
Registration is often required as space is limited. Please check our calendar for your area to find what programs are currently being offered.
Book Buddies Bags include a selection of children's quality books which can be borrowed by parents and/or caregivers and children attending our programs.
Programs and Workshops for Parents
Parenting programs such as "Nobody's Perfect", "Parents 1234", and "How to Talk so Kids will Listen" are offered through all of our centres.
Information sessions on a variety of topics including child development, discipline, healthy lifestyles may also be offered.
These workshops are offered in response to the needs of parents/caregivers and vary in length.
Home Play Program
The Home Play Program is designed for families who may have difficulty getting to the Family Resource Centre. We can design a Home Play Kit to fit the needs for infants, toddlers, preschool, and even school-aged children.
Home Play Kits contain games, puzzles, toys, books and arts and craft materials, and can be borrowed for a 2-4 week period.
Arrangements can be made to have the kit delivered to your home, picked up at one of our centres, or at a convenient location in the community.
