Bright Futures Play Academy is excited to offer parents, guardians, caregivers and their child some additional resources to assist them in working with their child during the developmental years. These additional resources are specific program ideas and supports designed to assist you in raising a family while connecting you with community partners in a fun, relaxed, informative atmosphere! These services are available to all families who are registered with Bright Futures Play Academy and are referred to as Family Oriented Programming.
Family Oriented Programming sessions provide parents, guardians and caregivers an opportunity to participate with their child in fun activities together. These sessions focus on a variety of topics which address many aspects of early childhood development and enhance your child’s school experience. Each session is designed to support parents, guardians and caregivers in the following areas: Social Skills & Behaviour, Language & Literacy Development, as well as Physical Skill Development.
A variety of sessions will be offered throughout the year. Your child’s teacher will be able to work with you on providing more ideas and suggestions on which sessions would be most beneficial based on the needs of your child. These sessions are offered at no cost to children who attend our Bright Futures Play Academy Programs. Families of children who have identified additional needs and whose program is supported by an Individual Program Plan (IPP) are encouraged to participate in a minimum of four sessions throughout the school year.
Registration is open to all families who attend Bright Futures Play Academy program. Refer to the link below for more details or talk with your child’s teacher. Sign-up is required ahead of the dates to ensure we have space and resources to meet the number of attendees. Childcare for younger siblings, where needed, may also be available during some sessions.
Note: We offer a variety of sessions by several community partners across a number of Wolf Creek communities. Families are encouraged to sign up for any sessions that are of interest to them- signing up early will ensure you get a spot in before sessions fill up! * See below for upcoming session information on March 17th in Ponoka, Blackfalds and Lacombe.
