The program is available to residents of Leduc County, the City of Leduc, the towns of Beaumont, Devon, Calmar and Thorsby and the village of Warburg. Learn more about the Early Childhood Resource Program on the back page. Leduc Regional Parent Link Centre Parent Link is designed to support parents in their role as children s first and most influential teachers. Parent Link Centres and programs are resources parents can access with their children to meet other parents, participate in play with their children, obtain information and obtain support to help with parenting challenges.

In the event of severe weather or poor road conditions, drop-in programs may need to be closed with short notice. We will post this information to our Facebook page as soon as possible.

3 Program descriptions Developmental domains As part of our ongoing commitment to the children of the Leduc region, the programs we offer are being purposefully created with one or more of the five developmental domains in mind. Symbols by the program descriptions identify which domains they primarily focus on. If you have any questions, please call Physical health and well-being Encouraging physical growth and independence, gross and fine motor skills and coordination. Social competence Encouraging playing well with others, curiosity about the world, respect for adults and other children, behaviour and following rules/instructions, independence and self-confidence and eagerness to explore new things. Language and thinking Encouraging reading, writing, classification of shapes, numbers, colours, sizes and concepts. Communication skills and general knowledge Encouraging open communication of needs and wants in a socially appropriate way, storytelling and an appropriate awareness of the outside world. Emotional maturity Encouraging age-appropriate emotional understanding, empathy, reflection and controlled actions (thinking before doing). Drop-in programs Drop-in programs are a fun and flexible way to explore a variety of programs without committing to a weekly or monthly class. Join us to play today! Play, Learn and Grow Join this flexible drop-in program, where children with their parents will have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of open-ended materials and engage in fun and interesting learning experiences that build on their emerging skills and interests as they grow. Discover how you can play and have fun as you and your child go through each exciting stage of development together. Stay n Play *Check schedule for location-specific closures Are you looking for a program that encourages play and offers opportunities to connect with other children and adults in the community? This unstructured play time (0 to 6 years) promotes active exploration and provides learning activities that support healthy child development. A child s best learning happens in the context of relationships. Join your child while they engage with others in a fun, free and social environment. Rhymes and Story Times A group experience for parents and their babies, and children which focuses on the pleasure and power of using oral rhymes, songs and stories together. Please bring a small snack for your children.

5 Program descriptions Parent education First Steps to Childhood Success: Anxiety Is there a link between our ramped-up world, and the growing rates of anxiousness in children? What is anxiety and aggression about? Join us to understand how we can hold our children s big emotions. Learn about how developing brains get wired and, as parents and caregivers, we influence the connections that produce calmer responses. Navigating Motherhood Are you expecting or have just had a baby? If you are having feelings of depression, anxiety or being overwhelmed, you are not alone. Join us as we share information, experiences and coping strategies focused on the symptoms of postpartum depression and anxiety while connecting with other moms with similar challenges. Registration may involve a short, in-person or phone intake. Tantrum Terrors Join us for a discussion about books and resources that can be used to support children through their frustrations and big emotions. We ll talk about how children learn to regulate and how we, as parents and caregivers, can best guide that process. Learn about what name it to tame it means and walk through a melt-down with the chocolate-covered- cookie tantrum. ColourSpectrums Workshop This personality dynamics and communication workshop will educate and entertain as participants will actively explore their parenting strengths, sources of self-esteem and communication style, as well as those of their children. Triple P: Positive Parenting Program Triple P is a parenting program, but it doesn t tell you how to be a parent. You choose the strategies you need and that work for your family and your children. You make Triple P work for you. The three P s in Triple P stand for Positive Parenting Program. It is meant to make your life and parenting much more enjoyable and rewarding. All families are different, and as such, Triple P has a range of ways to get the support that you want. Choose from a seminar, group program, discussion group and/or in-home sessions. Check out the provincial Triple P website (www.triplep-parenting.net) to get more information and access an online Triple P program that can be accessed at your convenience. Triple P Discussion Groups (for parents and caregivers of children 2-12 years old) Hassle Free Shopping With Your Children One of the most difficult times for parents is when their children misbehave in public those are the times when children won t do as they are told, or really lose their cool. This workshop looks at some way to make shopping fun, by planning ahead to reduce some of those challenging behaviours. All Leduc Regional Parent Link Centre and Early Childhood Resource programs are provided at no cost to participants unless otherwise indicated.

6 Program descriptions Dealing with Disobedience Do you feel like your child just doesn t listen? Many parents find this extremely frustrating and overwhelming. This discussion will provide you with information and practical strategies. Learn how to prevent problems and to teach your child to accept limits and follow through with instructions. Leave with a parenting plan to implement immediately. Managing Fighting and Aggression When children argue or fight, or become aggressive, it can be hard for parents to know when to step in, and how to calm things down. This workshop looks at some of the reasons why children fight and gives some practical suggestions to help you prevent problems by teaching your child to play cooperatively and resolve conflicts. Developing Good Bedtime Routines It can be exhausting for the whole family when there are problems at bedtime. A few small changes can make a big difference, so everyone in the family gets the sleep they need. This workshop looks at common bedtime problems and why they happen and gives some practical suggestions to help you develop a good bedtime routine. Triple P Seminars (for parents and caregivers of children 2-12 years old) Power of Positive Parenting This seminar speaks to the realities of being a parent; talks about the tough part of being a parent in dealing with children s behaviour; outlines what positive parenting is; and highlights the five key principles of positive parenting. Raising Confident, Competent Children Children are more likely to be confident, succeed at school and get on well with others when they develop specific life skills. Join us as we explore ways you can help equip your children with the essential social skills they will need. Raising Resilient Children Resilient kids are problem solvers who can cope with their feelings. This helps to build long-term happiness and success in life. They face unfamiliar or tough situations and strive to find good solutions. Join us as we look at the six key skills that build resilience in children and help them bounce back and manage their emotions well. Triple P Tip Sheets (see back of program guide for tip sheet list) Triple P offers tip sheets with information on a wide range of childhood behaviours that concern parents such as tantrums, separation issues or lying. There are 32 tip sheets available covering common parental concerns. Triple P - Primary Care (1:1) Triple P Primary Care is a one-to-one format that assists parents to develop parenting plans to manage behavioural issues (e.g. tantrums, fighting, going shopping) and skill development issues (e.g., eating independently, toilet training, staying in bed at night). Early Years Mentors provide 3-4 sessions (15-30 minutes each) over a period of 4-6 weeks. Sessions can be done in person, over the phone, or as a combination of both. - continued next page Find us on Facebook! Connect with us at facebook.com/leducregionalparentlink
