Family Wellness Circle

A playgroup (0-6) for all families to gather together to play, laugh and learn from one another. 

This unique and inspiring program will host a guest speaker each week sharing practical information and resources about parenting, health, playtime, routine, parenting books of interest and so much more.  Traditional Indigenous teachings with time-honoured messages will also be offered to reinforce the importance of parenting and self-care in everyday life.

We invite you to join us to experience the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of our Family Wellness Circle.

Healthy snacks provided.
