Fresh Air Spring Break Nature Camp

Camps for kids who are currently enrolled in Kindergarten up to Grade 6 are provided during Spring Break and Summer. Camps are a fun opportunity to explore, learn new skills, make new friends and build community. Our Reggio inspired model encourages children and families to learn, explore, discover and connect. Before and after camp care is also available. Discover your inner adventurer at Alexandra Neighbourhood House!

In addition, join us weekly over the summer for Neighbourhood Fun Nights and for other family-focused community events throughout the year. 

Do you need care for your children outside of school hours? We can help!

Parenting 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. Click here for dates.
