Amlat’si Indigenous Family Drop-in

For parents, grandparents, and caregivers with Indigenous children 0 – 6 years old. Focus is on creating a sense of belonging and community for young Indigenous children, their families and for developing their relationships to their community. Children and parents make new friends, learn positive ways to support each other and learn new Indigenous-focused crafts, stories and games. Activities include playing, outings, workshops, guest speakers and traditional arts- and-craft activities.
