Parent Education Workshop Series: Parenting is full of joys and challenges at every age and stage. The Positively Parenting Workshop Series has four interactive workshops designed to empower, connect and support parents of children and youth. The workshops are open to parents and caregivers, including grandparents, of children ages 6 and up, with a focus on the elementary school years. Free of charge, the workshops aim to be interactive, informative and engaging. Each workshop can stand-alone so parents can attend one, two, three or all four of the workshops in either location.
Topical information, resources, meaningful activities and role-plays are provided to practice and facilitate discussion. Workshops also give parents the opportunity to connect, share with and support one another. These free, popular workshops are a great way to meet other parents, share ideas, and gain new perspectives. Limited childminding for ages 12 and under available through the recreation centre, for a fee, during workshops.
