FAMILY RESOURCE NETWORK COMING TO COCHRANE
Cochrane and area has been recognized as a medium-sized community by the province and the Town of Cochrane has officially been designated a Family Resource Network (FRN) under Alberta Children’s Services (ACS).
The Parent Link Centre is designed to help families with children birth to six years of age to:
Play: All of the programs offered by the Parent Link Centre are based on the philosophy that play is a critical part of children's learning. Play allows children to enhance their skills in every area of development. Each program is designed to give your child a variety of play opportunities to increase their fine motor, gross motor, problem solving, sensory and social-emotional skills.
Learn: The Parent Link Centre has a lending library complete with parent resources and children's books available to borrow. We also offer Parent Education courses on a variety of topics. Early Child Educators are on staff to answer any parenting questions you may have.
Connect: Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world. Visit any of our age-appropriate programs to play, meet other parents in your community and connect with the many resources we have to offer.
Services offered by the Parent Link Centre include:
This service is offered in partnership with Alberta Children's Services, Calgary & Area Child & Family Services Authority, and Cochrane FCSS.
