IMG_0029Sharing, caring and learning together through play. The family programs at Parkgate create a variety of opportunities for children to learn and grow in a creative, play-based environment. The programs connect families and support family life, and are friendly places where parents, care providers and young children can come to grow, to share, and to learn together.

There are a range of services and programs designed to meet the needs of today’s families. Most programs are low cost as in the course description. For more information, contact our Family Services Supervisor at 604-983-6444 *849.

Does my child need to complete a gradual entry process?
