Parents and Children Together (PACT)
What We Offer...
PACT is a playgroup/preschool/parent program for you and your children, aged 0-5, to attend together.
For Your Child
The playgroup is stimulating, child-directed, and supports your child’s development through play centres that consist of play-dough, painting, crafts, floor toys, dress-up, books, puzzles, building blocks, song/music instruments and more!
Along with the playgroup, PACT offers a parent program. While the children play, parents, grandparents and caregivers participate in thought-provoking discussion groups that are facilitated by a parent mentor. These discussions focus on child development and navigating the joys and challenges of parenting, while supporting caregiver friendships.
Our programs are going to be starting back up in Fall of 2021.
If you have any questions or concerns about any of your child’s milestones or their development please consider contacting our friends at Lead Foundation 403-270-7912. They offer free consultation focusing on enhancing your child’s success with speech and language skills, motor skills, social interaction and play, pre-academic development, and/or daily living skills.
