Parents & Caregivers

Please visit our website frequently for updates on new webinar topics.  And, if you have a suggestion for a topic we should feature in support of nurturing resilience in children and youth during this difficult time or if you have any questions, please contact mackenzie.cielen-gough@strongmindsstrongkids.org

What I like was that in this time of the pandemic I am still able to learn new things/refresh by online learning.

Michael Guignard, Child and Youth Worker

I have been an ECE for 20+ years and most times I take some kind of PD it’s similar to others I have done…but this time I truly learned something NEW! Thank you!
