Parent-Tot Drop-In is a free family resource program that offers a stimulating play group for children birth to six. It is a place where parents can take a break from the home routine, connect with other parents, and have fun playing with their children. The program runs from Monday-Friday 9- 11.30 am and 1- 3.30 pm. You will find a well-equipped and safe playroom with quality toys. Healthy snacks with tea and coffee are served at each Drop-In group session.
Parent and Tot served 220 clients this year and provided more than 1050 points of service for all the activities in the program based on child development.
In our program, we have introduced origami which helps children develop patience, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and mental concentration.
Whereas, we do outdoor activities with AIDP for swimming every week Friday.
Throughout this year the activities of the program are outdoor activities, Virtual Tours, reading online stories, singing and learning new songs, online games for brain development, and day-to-day crafts.
Art, Craft, and outdoor activities were one of the success stories for this year. There has been so much community attention and involvement in the program. After the new poster and monthly calendars were made. Everyone enjoyed the interaction throughout the session as they learned different kinds of skills in craft.
In our program, we seize any opportunity to bring happiness and wellness to families and continue to assist them in finding positive experiences during post-pandemic by improving overall health and wellness through the services provided.
