We facilitate positive family learning experiences.

Family Place is a facilitated drop-in program for children birth to six years and their parents/caregivers.  It has been running successfully at the Chase River Club since 2010 and at the Lantzville Club since 1994.

Program Description

Parents/Caregivers learn different ways to play with their children and build on these experiences and their relationship with their child. The program gives children early experiences interacting with their peers and opportunities to learn new skills such as sharing, conflict resolution, large and small gross motor skill development and creative expression.

Parents have access to community resources, pamphlets, parent magazines, workshop and support group information. The facilitator arranges for monthly guest speakers such as a community nutritionist, dental hygienist and speech and language pathologist.
