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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does my child need to complete a gradual entry process?

Yes, all children must complete a gradual entry process. The supervisor of the program will create the schedule and share it with you. The gradual entry process typically takes place in the first week of the month that your child begins. If space permits, it may be arranged to complete the process the week before. For an early gradual entry, additional fees will be charged.
