Parenting Programs:

Make the Connection:

Make the Connection Parenting Program is built on the theory that development occurs within the context of relationships. Thus, an infant raised within the loving and responsive parent-infant relationship will develop a healthy sense of self, confident use of language, and a love of learning.

When this positive relationship is established during the first three years, a foundation is laid for a child to do well socially, emotionally, and academically. Regardless of gender, class, or ethnicity, there is a wealth of research to support the fact that children do better in school and have fewer behavioural problems with this healthy start.

Community Parent/Child Programs:

Shake, Rattle & Roll:

This program was specifically designed for toddlers and their parents. Children at this age not only love to have the one-on-one attention of one or even both of their parents but they also love to watch their parents participate in the games! Parents act as positive role models and often can be all that is needed to help their shy child become involved.

The main objectives of the program are:

  • encourage early movement and coordination using simple songs, large, and small apparatus, and hand-held equipment.
  • to promote positive attitudes towards a healthy and active way of life.
  • to develop gross motor skills in toddlers
  • to aid in encouraging social and emotional development
  • to begin to develop body awareness
  • to have fun with Mom/Dad/ caregiver/ adult
  • to educate parents/caregivers and build awareness of the importance of physical activity in pre-school play
