Children & Family Programs

Immigrant and refugee parents and their children often experience high levels of stress and trauma before, during and post-migration process. Our play-based, trauma-informed early learning programming creates safe and warm places for kids to learn and grow through play, art, science, songs, and stories. Our family literacy programs provide a chance for mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and other family caretakers to learn along with their young children and to find out more about parenting in Canada, nurture their sense of self-efficacy and confidence, and reduce social isolation so that they can support the early development of their children in the best possible way.

Led by qualified staff, we deliver the following Children and Family programs throughout the year:

Kids Have Stress Too

Nobody’s Perfect

My Tween and Me

Parent Child Mothergoose

Healthy Together

Kindergarten Transition Program

Children’s programming is also offered in parallel with Community English Classes and Pathways to Chidlcare Careers programs when delivered in-person.

One of our participants, Fawzia, says “I feel more comfortable when my kids ask me to play with them. I am more open to listen and observe their needs.”
