Parent/Child Family Literacy Program
The aim of this program is to enhance the parent’s role as the child’s first teacher. This is done through structured and unstructured activities. There are new topics and themes scheduled each week from September-June. There is no fee for this program, healthy snacks are provided for participants and free childcare for siblings registered in the program.  
This program is funded through Healthy Child Manitoba.

Relaxation Station 
Kids feel the stress of everyday life and military life just as much as the adults in your home. This program will help them talk about their feelings and share their experiences with our puppets and friends. It will provide opportunities where they can freely express themselves through open ended experiences and imagination. Program runs from September to June.
