Rexdale Women’s Centre – Family Drop-In

Group Name: Rexdale Women’s Centre – Family Drop-In

Description: The Rexdale Women’s Centre is an independent, non-for-profit, voluntary agency that serves high-need women and their family members residing in the Greater Toronto Area. At the Rexdale Women’s Centre, our vision is that in the Greater Toronto Area all immigrant, newcomer and refugee women and their partners, children, parents, and other family members of all generations have everything they need.

The Family Drop-In program is designed for children from 2 to 12 years of age and their parents. The program provides children with the opportunity to develop skills in language, cognitive development, sensory development, creativity and gross motor skills development. This program is designed for newcomer children and their parents who have limited knowledge of English language. While children are busy learning and creating, parents are involved in workshops and seminars that develop better parenting skills. Parents learn more about their children’s development and are encouraged to use these techniques at home in order to continue the growth of newly acquired skills and at the same time foster positive learning opportunities for their children.

Rexdale Women’s Centre – Nobody’s Perfect Parenting Group

Group Name: Rexdale Women’s Centre – Parenting and Family Supportive Counselling

Description: The Rexdale Women’s Centre is an independent, non-for-profit, voluntary agency that serves high-need women and their family members residing in the Greater Toronto Area.

Nobody’s Perfect Parenting Groups: Many parents and grandparents lack the social networks and supports needed in order to parent more effectively. Connecting, sharing and building skills with peers are often powerful tools in addressing the lack of confidence, self-esteem or parenting experience needed by caregivers to successfully address everyday challenges. More importantly, participants share learned expertise, views and ideas. Many of the participants develop social support networks while attending the group, which continue providing encouragement and help when the groups are finished. Upon completion of the program, often participants state that they feel more confident in parenting their children because of the techniques they learned while in the group.

Where: 925 Albion Road, Suite 309 | Etobicoke, ON M9V 3Y7
