Parenting Workshops

Parent Workshops aim to support and strengthen existing parenting abilities and promote the development of new competencies so that parents have the knowledge and skills needed to carry out child-rearing responsibilities and provide their children with experiences and opportunities that promote child learning and development.

Play n' Learn Family Events

The Play ‘n Learn program is designed to meet the specific developmental needs of young children ages 0-6. Our variety of activities provide opportunity for young children and their caregivers to enjoy one another’s company while participating in a combination of informal playgroups and structured learning opportunities. These events are intended to be educational for both children and caregivers.
