Mum's Night Out

Wouldn’t it be great to get out a couple of times a month for a relaxing evening with other moms? Share the joys and frustrations of being a parent, learn new tips from others, get information from guest experts, have an adult conversation! It’s your program. All decisions are based on group needs and wants from how often to meet, what day and time, to choosing topics to discuss. Maybe even bring dads for any evenings of special interest to them.

You Make the Difference

The You Make the Difference Parent-Child Interaction Program (YMTD) is a community based, general education program that encourages positive parent/child interaction. Using a combination of parent group sessions and individual parent and child practice sessions, (YMTD) helps parents learn how to foster and enrich their child’s social, language and literacy development during everyday experiences.

 

The parent and child relationship is the most important context in which the child’s early language, social and literacy development unfold. How the parent interacts with the child during their everyday routines and activities plays a key role in the child’s overall development. Helping parents provide their child with a positive, responsive, language-enrich and stimulating early environment can make the difference in helping the child reach his or her full potential.

 

You Make the Difference is a nine session (9) program which includes a 90-minute parent group followed by an individual one-on-one parent/child practice session (approximately 10 minutes for each family). This program is intended for families with children birth to 5 years. Childcare provided while parents are in the parent education piece. Snacks and refreshments will be provided for all.

Our programs & services are offered at no charge to the community. Please note Tickets/Registration for You Make the Difference. Please click here to obtain a ticket per child.
