As some of you may already know, we received notification from the province that our grants that support our programs and services as a Parent Link Centre will end on March 31, 2020, and will not be renewed.
With funding ending for Parent Link Centres, the Government of Alberta will be launching a new province-wide approach to prevention and early intervention under their new Family & Community Resiliency Division. Parent Link Centres will be replaced with Family Resource Networks (FRNs) which are inclusive, accessible, family-focused, child and youth-centered, community-based centres that will offer a full continuum of prevention, and early intervention services. Each FRN will look different based on the geographic area and the unique needs of the community.
We have an exciting lineup of programs for our last session as the Parent Link you know and love! Over the next several months families can look forward to a variety of drop-in, and registered programs, as well as community events, and parent workshops.
As always, registration will begin at the Mini Energizer Night at the Chestermere Rec Centre on Wednesday, January 8th from 6:00 - 8:00pm. We will be taking phone call registrations starting Thursday, January 9th at 9:00am.
The the Kidz 1st Network Parent Link Centre has been a part of the community for over 13 years. We would like to thank each and every one of you who has made this community an amazing place to live and work!
