Child & Family Programming
Child-Caregiver Interactive Programs
Sign-up for Wiggles & Giggles, Jump Jiggle Jive, Family Playgroup and more! Together, you and your child can take part in fun activities, make crafts, enjoy snacks, sing songs, and more. All child-caregiver programs require registration. You can find more information about current offerings in our program calendar.
Engaging children’s imaginations through art, crafts, song, and games, the child development team encourages children to develop their language and social skills through play. These programs are for children under the age of 5 and take place while parents/caregivers engage in parenting programs.
Sunshine Gang Summer Camp
These four-day summer camps give children aged 3-5 the chance to socialize with their peers before they start grade primary. Each week has a different theme and full of activities, games, and new friends.
We offer both multi-week parenting programs such as Prenatal, Incredible Years, and How to Talk so Kids Will Listen, as well as once-time workshops like Bedtime Blues and Toilet Learning. These programs include a snack and on-site childcare is provided.
Drop-in Room & Trading Cupboard
Visit our drop-in room and use our Trading Cupboard. The Trading Cupboard operates on a credit system: bring in unexpired, non-perishable food and toiletry items and you’ll get credit for each item. You can then use that credit to take home items from the trading cupboard, such as canned goods, coffee/tea, toilet paper, toiletries, etc.
Enhanced Home Visiting
The Enhanced Home Visiting program provides support to families with children three years old and younger. Families are assessed by their Public Health nurse and referred to the home visiting program. Families are then matched up with a home visitor who makes regular visits to their home, providing one-on-one personalized support in a wide variety of areas, parenting lessons, activities, and resources.
Parenting Journey provides one-on-one in-home support for families with children age 0 to 19, who are looking for extra support. Parenting Journey is self-referral program.
