Our programs and services are preventative and supportive preparing families to respond to challenges as they arise. We provide services in parenting, early childhood development and care, family support, and accessing community resources. We work diligently to meet the needs of the families in our community.
In 2004 the Provincial Parent Link Initiative chose the Early Childhood Resource Centre to be the designated Grande Prairie site for Parent Link.
The Early Childhood Resource Centre – Parent Link provides programming for children, families and community agencies to facilitate effective positive learning, allowing individuals the opportunity to grow in every area of their development. There is an onsite resource library, which includes books, articles and DVD’s on a variety of topics including parenting and all areas of child development.
