Spring 2021 Programs During COVID-19

We were hopeful that government restrictions would have eased in time for the launch of our Spring session to allow in-person programs. However, with the latest updates, we have made the decision to continue with only virtual programs. The website has been updated to reflect this. Some programs will not be able to run virtually and will be removed. Our brochure will not accurately reflect these changes, so we encourage you to review our website for the most up-to-date information.

If you need any additional resources during this time, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 780-413-4521. In the meantime, we have already created some online programs, services and support options. These are on each program page, the At-Home Family Fun page, and our YouTube channel.

Registration for Summer Programs (July-August) opens June 1 at 9 am

Please note, some of our Early Childhood Development programs go up to 6-years-old. Check here for additional programs that may be applicable to your family.

 

Creative Kids

6–10 years | Express your ideas and show your originality at this exciting art program! We will be exploring various mediums of art including, paint, pastels, and papier-mâché. On the final evening of the program, we will have our very own FFRN Art Exhibit for all the children to show off their works of art which, they can then take home in their art portfolios. Children will be challenged to think outside-the-box and use their creativity with art projects that will boost their confidence and let loose their imaginations!

Check out Art Works for a similar program for youth ages 11 to 14-years-old.

Home Alone

10 years and up | Ideally, children should be supervised at all times by a responsible adult. However, today’s family situations often cannot accommodate this idea. The Home Alone Program is designed to provide children with the necessary skills and knowledge to be safe and responsible when home alone for short periods of time. It will help them understand how to prevent problems, handle real-life situations, and keep them safe and constructively occupied. This program has been developed by the Canada Safety Council and is recommended for children who are at least 10 years of age and up. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
