Programs for Families

Programs offered at the Tantramar Family Resource Centre

Prenatal classes

This program is offered in partnership with VON Healthy Baby & Me. If you are expecting, or know someone who is, and would be interested in learning about prenatal nutrition, labour & delivery, and caring for the baby after it is born, please contact us to register. Again, registration is free for this program.

Parent-Child Mother Goose offered by Talk with Me

Parent-Child Mother Goose is a national program that focuses on oral traditions of singing, rhymes and story-telling to enhance language skills.

Registration is free, but pre-registration is required.

If you are (or you know someone who is) a trained Parent-Child Mother Goose facilitator who would be willing to co-facilitate a session, please contact us with details.

Parent & Tot Drop in Playgroup

Another great resource for parents is the Parent & Tot playgroup held every Thursday during the school year from 9:30-11 a.m. at the Sackville Presbyterian Church on the corner of Bridge and Squire Street. This is not a TFRC program, but we do work in partnership with the United Church to provide program updates and information.

Resource Lending library – books and pamphlets on a variety of topics, from nutrition to child-rearing

Active Kids Family Activity Pack Lending Library – A backpack filled with equipment and ideas for getting your whole family more active.
