You are your child's first teacher

Developing language and literacy skills begin at birth through everyday loving interactions, such as sharing books, telling stories, singing songs, and talking to one another. Babies learn to be good communicators when their caregivers respond to their sounds and actions. They learn to love books and reading when their caregivers read to them often.

Independence Day July 4th


Independence day usually means, back yard BBQs, baseball and fireworks!This year we'll likely be celebrating independence day a little differently. So why not take the opportunity to create new memories and maybe even start a new tradition.

Instead of a parade, go on a family bike ride.

Put together a baseball game in the front yard.

Watch a patriotic movie as a family.

Pitch a tent and go camping in the backyard.

Parents' Day July 26

July 26th is Parents day! On this day, parents (including guardians and other parental role models) are recognized for the important role they play in their children's lives. The day aims to promote responsible parenting and to recognize positive parental role models. It celebrates the special bonds of love between parental figures and their children. But parenting isn't always easy! Wouldn't it be great if we had a toolkit or strategies to help support us in being a more confident effective parent? The Triple P Program is here to help!

"Parenting is like going back to school; but this time to learn patience" - Anonymous

Amid a Pandemic, Protests, Social Distancing, Masks and Uncertainty


These days it might be hard to tell what kids are thinking and feeling, especially the little ones, who are just learning to communicate. But kids can tell us a lot about their emotions, without saying much. Babies may seem more clingy or have a hard time sleeping. Toddlers might regress to an activity they "grew" out of like potty training or bottle weaning. Older children may become withdrawn or more aggressive.
