Family Play & Learn
The Family Play & Learn Centre is a free drop-in program for parents/caregivers and their child(ren) birth-6 years.
Our space offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere where parents/caregivers are able to share and learn new ways to support their child’s learning and development through play both at the program and at home.
• Infants-safe area for babies to engage in developmentally appropriate activities that promote growth in all areas of development
• Toddlers-space and programming has specific design elements for toddlers (18-36 months)
• Qualified Early Childhood Educator on site to support learning, answer questions
and help connect families to information, resources and services
As Fort St. John is subject to such long winter months, we wanted to create a space and program that endeavors to meet the increasing need in our community for more opportunities for parents/caregivers of young children to connect with one another as a means to decrease isolation and build greater community.
Here at Family Play & Learn, we provide an inclusive environment where all families can feel comfortable to participate. We rely on parent participation to help foster positive and safe interactions between children.
We are excited for you to come and explore our program, Family Play & Learn.
