What is the Parent and Tot Program?

A fun playgroup where parents/caregivers and toddlers meet together to play and support one-another in an accepting environment. Toddlers will have free-exploration of a variety of play-based activities including craft, dress up, blocks, puzzles, sensory bins, gross motor activities and more!

An important and unique part of Parent and Tots is having parents stay to interact with each other and to engage in play activities with their child.

  • Gain and give parent support
  • Receive information pertaining to community supports, activities, and resources
  • Learn new strategies and techniques for supporting challenging behaviour, communication and play

Children have the opportunity to:

  • Freely explore a variety of play-based activities planned around their interests
  • Gain new experiences
  • Meet other toddlers/preschoolers
  • Engage in circle time activities with parents and other children
