Friday, February 7 or Friday, February 14, from 8:30 a.m. to noon | Free

“Home Alone” Workshop FOR 10–13 YEAR-OLD KIDS (9 years old if the child has completed third grade).


With the kids back in school, many parents are faced with this dilemma: “Can I leave the kids home alone until I get home from work?”

Even if it is often for a short period of time, many things come to your mind: their age, their maturity, the duration of your absence, etc.
The free “Home Alone” Workshop’s mission is to prepare children to get along on their own, to stay away from problems, to deal with situations that may arise, and to keep busy in a safe and constructive manner. After the workshop, the children will have exercises and reading to do with their parents. 
This is a great opportunity to develop your kids’ autonomy!
