counties » Cape Breton Regional Municipality
Within the Cape Breton Regional Municipality, Family Place offers parents, caregivers, and children an opportunity to come together and share the joys and challenges of parenting. We also offer support services to families during the prenatal period. Services continue to be offered to parents and caregivers with children birth to 16 years. One of the goals of the organization is to ensure that our programs and services are as accessible as possible. We do this by offering programs throughout many of the communities within the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. As well, we work within our budgets to provide whatever support we can to help with child care and transportation costs. All Family Place programs are offered free of charge.
Some of the services and programs include prenatal programs, breast feeding support group, Baby Talk, a whole variety of different parent education programs including a support group for fathers, Play Groups, Ready to Learn programs, Read with Me, Early Years Demonstration Site programs (Jubilee Elementary School), Four Plus Program (Harbourside Elementary School), Tumble Bugs, Music and Movement and home visiting programs.
During the 2014-2015 fiscal year we offered programs in Florence, Gardiner Mines, Glace Bay, Louisbourg, Marion Bridge, New Victoria, New Waterford, North Sydney, Reserve Mines, Sydney, Sydney Mines, Westmount, and Whitney Pier.
