Basic English and Play

Are you new to Canada?  Is English your second language?

Basic English and Play is a program that gives parents the opportunity to make new friends from other cultural backgrounds, to improve their English skills and to get information about Canadian practices, nutrition, parenting and much more.

The children get the chance to play in our child development room while supervised by our qualified staff to learn new songs, enhance their language skills, be creative and make new friends. 

Who is it for

Families, single parents of children at the age range 0-6 years who are from abroad, new to Canada, feel isolated and English is their second language.
