Parent Link Centre

Parent Link Centre play programs are based on the philosophy that the early years are the learning years and play is a critical part of children's learning. All play programs are designed to develop and enhance your child's fine motor, gross motor, problem solving, sensory and social-emotional skills.

Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world. With programs offered by the Parent Link Centre, you don't have to do it alone. Contact the Parent Link Centre for more information.
