A place where:

  • You and your child can play together.
  • You can meet other families.
  • You can participate in activities that will help you grow and develop together.
  • You can get to know trained professionals who can help you support and encourage your child and offer research-based resources on parenting and child development.

Welcome to the I hope family centre, a community hub that provides programs and services to promote wellness and the optimal development of children birth to age six.

I hope family centre recognizes that all families need resources and support regardless of economic or social circumstances and believes that diversity in the community enriches child development.

The early years from birth to six provide a “window of opportunity” for early brain development. Through play and validating responses from a parent/caregiver, children receive nurturing and stimulation that can have a lasting effect on their physical, emotional and intellectual development.
