COMMUNITIES CARING FOR CHILDREN
Parenting programs that build healthy, caring children and families.
We believe that children and families thrive best in a strengths-based environment. Families are at the centre of services and supports are collaborative, culturally sensitive, individualized and flexible. We are trauma-informed and attachment based.
What we do
The Communities Caring for Children program is offered in collaboration with the Surrey Early Childhood Mental Health Collaborative. Parenting programs are offered throughout the City of Surrey during the fall, winter and spring. They are free to all who would like to attend. Group facilitators are child development professionals who guide and support parents to better understand their children’s needs; find solutions to parenting challenges; and improve parent-child relationships.
