Our Resource Services
The Children’s Village offers a variety of resources for both providers and parents, including a “drop-in play group, support for parents to find information on daycare options (PEDCO Seminar), and additional workshops.
Our Resource Centre
Our child-focused centre invites providers and parents to bring in their preschoolers, toddlers and babies to the “drop-in” play group for:
- crafts, games, painting, songs and free play
- special holiday activities
- healthy snacks
Parents and providers can join in the fun with the children, share ideas and experiences with others attending and also consult with our experienced and knowledgeable staff who facilitate the play sessions.
Please see Resource Centre for more information about the drop-in centre, including hours and location information.
