The Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) aims to improve healthy child development by improving parenting skills and parent-child relationships and decreasing social isolation. The program is provided in Cantonese and Mandarin, offering a positive learning experience for children (aged 0-6) and their families. CAPC facilitators lead fun learning activities where children find opportunities to make friends and interact with others of similar ages. CAPC facilitators support caregivers to expand their social support networks, share experiences, and learn more about community resources.
CAPC Program Offering In-person Sessions Beginning November 4th
The CAPC program will be operating at General Currie Early Learning Centre beginning November 4th. We are looking forward to having children and caregivers return to our program. We will be operating at a reduced capacity, which means fewer families per day to accommodate cleaning and disinfecting protocols. We ask that only ONE adult attends with children.
To ensure Health & Safety protocols, NO DROP-INS allowed, online booking for all sessions will be required (in-person, Zoom and outdoor). Pre-Booking of appointments on Eventbrite.
In addition to CAPC in-person and online programs for children and their families, the Touchstone Early Years staff continues to provide outreach support for families by phone, email and WeChat.
In July & August a summer program is offered. To view the schedule click here
