BRINGING FAMILY CENTRE TO YOU
We reach out to our community
Family Centre thrives because it is a part of a supportive community. We appreciate the support, and are eager to pay this support back to our community!
One method of giving back to our community is through our Outreach Programs. Family Centre will be more than happy to consider hosting programs and events that are directed at families or professionals in the family support sector in and around Lethbridge. Please contact Trever Broadhead, Family Support Manager, at 403-320-4232 x206, to discuss such opportunities.
Many of the early childhood education and parenting programs offered by Family Centre staff within our own facility are well suited to be delivered elsewhere – possibly in a condensed form. Below are some examples of programs suited for off-site delivery. Call Family Centre for more information.
Positive Parenting Program (Triple P)
The Positive Parenting Program series offers easy to implement, proven parenting solutions that helps solve current parenting problems and prevents future problems before they arise. Triple P calls parents to stay positive and gives them the tools to do so. We offer two four hour overview seminars, tailored to parents of young children (Triple P Child Seminar) and teens (Triple P Teen Seminar).
Children can get hung up on their worries as they get exposed to and learn more about the world they live in. This program gives children between the ages of 7 to 12 space to express their worries and teaches them tools to tame their worry dragons and not get over-powered. This program has already been successfully delivered at several schools in Lethbridge.
Parents and Children Together (PACT)
This fun, interactive play group is intended for parents and children 0 – 6. This program is facilitated by an Early Childhood Educator and includes fun learning and play centres. Staff will bring along many ideas and resources for parents and support parents in their very important roles.
