June 19, 2022
Screen Time & Physical Literacy (online workshop)
In this workshop, we’ll talk about the impact of screen time and regular exercise on the brains and bodies of growing children. We’ll also provide parents with suggestions to encourage their kids to reduce screen time and develop the fundamental skills of sports/physical literacy that will help them lead healthier lives. This workshop takes place on Thursday, June 30th at 1:30pm.
Postpartum Mood Disorder Support
Support is available to mothers who are experiencing difficulties adjusting to life with a new baby or are coping with Postpartum Mood Disorder. Join us for a free weekly discussion group to meet other mothers and share your ideas, thoughts, and experiences. Childcare is provided in the centre for the duration of the program; you are also welcome to bring your baby into the group with you if you prefer. No registration needed.
This group takes place every Wednesday from 1:00pm-3:00pm at our Brittany Glen location (5632 Tenth Line W. Unit #1, Mississauga).
Beginning July 12th, our Heart Lake location (180 Sandalwood Pkwy East Unit #8C, Brampton) will have our PPMD Peer Support Group every Tuesday 1:00pm-3:00pm.
