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.

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.

Program Dates

The program runs September to June on Monday/Wednesday/Fridays from 9:30am-11:30am at the Lantzville location and Tuesday/Thursdays from 9:00am-11:00am at the Chase River location.  Closed on all SD68 school closure days and on Statutory holidays.

To register for the Family Place program, please complete the Family Place Registration Package and return it to the Program Facilitator.  BGCCVI Membership ($24.00 annually) is required for participation in this program. Please note that the fee can be waived based on need.

Fees

Family Place acknowledges the financial support of the province of British Columbia, and is proud to be the recipient of United Way Central & Northern Vancouver Island funding for programs in 2016/2017.   A suggested $2.00 drop-in donation will be accepted upon arrival.
