Join us at The QayQayt Neighbourhood Learning Center for play and early learning programming for your little ones 0-6yrs; planned by our insightful and creative Early Childhood Educators! Enjoy a chance to connect with other families and chat with our staff. Whether you just need someone to chat with or if you are needing any extra support; our Family Support Workers are available to help you access the resources your family needs to thrive!

Here is what you can expect at a Family Place Drop In:

Drop Ins run for 2-4 hours. This is an open time with continuous programming opportunities; come and go whenever is convenient for you. There is no registration required and you do not need to line up or arrive at a certain time.

Adults are required to wear a mask while indoors.

What if I have a question or need help?

If you need help accessing the activities, have questions or need first aid just approach any staff member wearing a yellow nametag.

What should you bring?

Come prepared for fun and mess! Clothes that can get dirty and are comfortable for movement are best.

Masks and proof of vaccination required for all adults at indoor programs.

At this time, due to Covid-19, we will not be offering a snack time so please bring your own water bottle and snack for your kiddos.

How can you find us ?

Our Drop In programs are held at the QayQayt Neighbourhood Learning Center, located inside the QayQayt Elementary School. Enter through the glass double doors at the back of the school, just past the school playground. Free street parking is available and bus stops are nearby.

It is so important to us that all of our families feel safe and comfortable while attending our programs. Every Family Place program, no matter the location, upholds and celebrates diversity – a space where all attendees always feel welcome. This includes members of the LGBTQ+ community, and folks of all religious, racial, or socioeconomic backgrounds.

If you, or someone you know, feels changes should be made to make New West Family Place a more welcoming space, please never hesitate to reach out. Family Place is here for all families!
