Parent and Child
This program for parents/caregivers and young children provides a warm and nurturing environment for learning and socializing.
The morning will be a time for the children to play and participate in a circle with rhymes and songs. It is also a time for parents to learn more about their child and themselves and to share parenting journeys. While many parenting programs focus on outer skills, this program builds inner practices and new capacities.
Parents will receive a lesson each week by email which will give a basis for a conversatiion circle and then a process for coming to one’s own individualized knowledge unique to their parenting. Simple colour exercises accompany the sessions. The morning will also include a snack time. The program is offered on Fridays and is incorporated into the kindergarten program.
The program is offered on Fridays in 7 weeks per term and will be led by Arlene Thorn and Hailey Surette. Registration is requested for each term and can be completed on-line. There is no cost for the program. Fall Term: September 27 – November 8; Winter Term – January 10 – Feb. 21; Spring Term – March 27 – May 8. The program will be offered in the upstairs of the North McIntyre Recreation Centre.
We look forward to welcoming you to our circle.
