Drop-Ins

PQCHC provides a variety of free family drop-ins to Ontario residents where families can play and learn together in a child-friendly space. These regular meetings are geared towards parents, caregivers and their children aged 0 to 6. Drop-ins are facilitated by qualified staff, who are happy to answer questions and provide access to referral services.

  • Drop-ins are located in a variety of locations, such as PQCHC, Grant Alternative School, Bayshore, Bethany Baptist Church, Chapters and Foster Farm.
  • Specialized drop-ins include: breastfeeding, postpartum support, infant crawlers and Baby Express
  • Arabic, Somali, French and French immersion

Parent / Caregiver Chats will also take place during drop-in times.  Parents will have the opportunity to hear a 15 minute presentation on the topic of the day, followed by 45 minutes for the facilitator to answer individual questions.  No registration is required.
