Enhanced Parenting

PIRS > Programs & Services > Early Childhood Education Programs > Enhanced Parenting

At PIRS we integrate enhanced Parenting and Family Literacy work into all our classes. Each ESL class includes sessions for caregivers to engage in guided Parent-Child Activities with a focus on supporting language and literacy acquisition.

We believe these opportunities are essential components for successful adaptation to Canadian parenting and education norms, including the often challenging concept of learning through play.

In each session, caregivers enjoy different activities alongside the children.

Caregivers gain knowledge when children learn complex ideas through play, art, science, singing songs and listening to stories.

Please call 604-298-5888 or email children@pirs.bc.ca for more information.
