Parenting Seminars


Current Seminars


Make the Connection 0-1 is being offered this fall in Gravenhurst, Huntsville and Port Sydney.  Join us to learn songs and rhymes, as well as new ways to connect with your baby.  Learn about your baby's growth and unique personality, meet new parents, share photos, and relax over a healthy snack.  This popular series lasts 7 weeks and is always a favourite with families.  The program is free but registration is required.  Please click here for more information.  Registration is now closed for this session.  Watch for the next session in the spring!

Strengthening Families for Parents and Youth is a great way for families with youth to aged 12 - 16 to learn the skills they need to get along better; to understand each other, improve communication and find fresh approaches to old problems.  The whole family will gather for dinner at 5:15 pm.  After dinner, they will engage in activities both separately and together until 8:00 pm.  Transportation and childcare are available.  Please call Amy McFadyen to register at 705-645-4426, ext 6268.  Please click here for more information.


Please note that we do not offer any programming in the summer.

Seminars for Parents


Whether offered during the day or in the evening,

Whether offered with childcare or not,

Whether the format is Triple P, Make the Connection or Strengthening Families,

All workshops have a few things in common and each will provide an opportunity to:

  • Add some strategies to your parenting "toolbox"
  • Share and network with other parents
  • Discuss developmental stages, positive communication and discipline
  • Ask questions, share successes and discuss challenges
  • Learn about other local agencies that provide help and services for specific problems, for example:
    "I think my child may need speech therapy, a hearing test, vision screening, etc"
