Group Programs are free and designed to address the emotional and educational needs of prenatal and parenting youth.
We offer a variety of group programs including:
Parenting Programs – Multi-week programs that focus on specific aspects of parenting and personal development, such as attachment, resiliency, positive parenting, healthy relationships and self-empowerment.
Workshops – One-time two-hour sessions that cover specialized topics such as early literacy, budgeting, mental wellness, and more. Some workshops are interactive with mom and child, others are just for moms.
Food Security Program – Living & Learning Together in the Kitchen offers online cooking classes, a basic kitchen tool kit, nutrition education, personal nutrition consults and home deliveries of groceries that help young parents make healthy meals for their growing toddlers and have basic care supplies like diapers, wipes and formula for their babies.
Socials – Special occasion gatherings (when safety restrictions allow) that bring participants together to celebrate occasions like Mother’s Day, cultural holidays, back to school, and more.
Talk Cafe – Participants discuss what is happening in their lives, including successes, challenges, concerns, and more. The format of Talk Cafe is continually informed by the feedback that comes out of the sessions.
Living & Learning Together – A weekly Mom and child drop-in program offered by our Child Development Centre (CDC) where participants are invited to explore materials and engage in fun and meaningful experiences and topics. This is a great time to chat with our expert staff to answer any questions that you may have about parenting and/or child development.
