Welcome to L’ATELIER at Alexandra Neighbourhood House in Crescent Beach!
L’Atelier is a place for children to explore, create, dream, wonder, play and build in a safe and caring environment; a space to discover, explore and engage.
Alexandra Family Place Drop-In is hosted in L'Atelier Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to noon with creative activities that are geared towards children 12 months and up. Siblings are welcome - and dress for mess!
Alex House is all about gathering people together to talk about things that matter to them. In the last few months we have heard from families that have some practical questions about their young children…. ‘My child is hitting…. is this normal?’ ‘My child has tantrums all the time…what do I do?’ ‘My child won’t share ... is this normal?’ ‘My child won’t listen…what do I do?’ ‘What does my child need to ‘know’ in preparation for kindergarden?’
The Parent Child Mother Goose program is a group experience for parents and their young children that focuses on the pleasure and power of using rhymes, songs and stories together, nurturing the bond that is growing between the parent and child. Check back often for information on the fall session.
This interactive program for parents and children 15 months to five years introduces the Reggio Emilia approach to learning and inspires children's natural curiosity to learn about the world around them. Enjoy hands-on, interactive experiences and a song and story time each week. Each family has the opportunity to create a book of songs and ideas to take home.
Parenting young children can be an amazing experience but can also have some challenges.
Family Drop In (L'Atelier) is all about having fun together, discovering together, learning together, sharing together, laughing together, and making friends together. We hope to see you there, where we’ve been providing opportunities for play and making friends for 100 years!
