Kaslo Strong Start Parent and Child Time year end party

Next week will be our last week of Strong Start Parent and Child Time (SSPACT), with the last day on Wednesday, June 13th in Kaslo.

Join us on Wednesday the 13th for our year-end party during SSPACT. 8:45-11:45am. Families are invited to bring a potluck snack to share with others (pecan and watermelon free, please).

Child Car Seat Clinic on Saturday, June 9th

Car seat clinics are a great opportunity to ensure that your child(ren)'s seats are installed in the safest way possible.  The certified technician will examine 'goodness of fit' in two ways: car seat to vehicle and child to car seat (so be sure to bring your child along!).  Since children are always growing, simple adjustments are usually required and are simple to do. 

Children and Anxiety: Free Workshop for Families with Young Children.

Children and Anxiety: a free workshop for families with young children with Sean Larsen, Child and Youth Mental Health Clinician. 

We all experience anxiety.  Let’s talk about when anxiety is helpful and when it is problematic.  Discuss where anxiety comes from, how it works in the body and the brain, and why it is essential.  Discover how anxiety changes with age and varies among children.  Sean will share practical tools to help manage problematic anxiety. Join us for this engaging conversation, filled with stories and humour.

The Family Centres at J. V. Humphries School in Kaslo and Jewett Elementary School in Meadow Creek are home to a wide variety of programs.

Family Centre programs are free of charge and usually closed for the same holidays as school holidays and run from September to June. Exceptions are noted below.
