Family Place Resource and Outreach Centre
Aldergrove's Family Place is the place to be!
At Encompass Support Services, our family place is at the heart of our programs available for parents with young children. We offer drop in programs four days a week, plus evening activities for families. The recently developed Parent Advisory Group helps our services better reflect the needs of parents accessing our programs. Our drop in is a place for parents and their young children to connect with families in their community. We offer an environment where parents can engage their children in developmentally appropriate activities, plus learn about child development, great parenting techniques and services available to them in their community. We work hard to ensure our activities - whether for the children or the parents - are educational, interactive, lots of fun and of interest to the families attending our program. We are always open to suggestions, so please contact us if you have an idea of an event or activity you would like to see happening in Aldergrove.
The Drop In schedule is as follows: (scroll below for our calendar)
Monday, Thursday and Friday from 9 am to 1 pm
Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm
