Artemis Young Parent Program
The Young Parent Program supports pregnant teens and young parents in a nurturing community while also providing a safe, stimulating environment for their children. In the on-site licensed infant/toddler centre the staff of experienced Early Childhood Educators provide responsive care for the children along with building respectful, trusting relationships with their families.
There are rich and varied experiences to support all aspects of children’s well-being while nurturing their cultural and familial traditions. The centre provides healthy snacks and lunches with a flexible schedule to meet the individual needs of the children.
The team of ECE’s, counselors and a Public Health Nurse offers pre-natal and parenting education, individual and group counseling, support and advocacy. Parents are also given the opportunity to connect with other students to share the joys and challenges of parenthood.
