Parents and Tots - We are a parents & toddlers support group. Every Friday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
Growing as parents we discuss:

  • Child development by age.
  • Feeding by age.
  • Key ideas for healthy eating
  • Budgeting for a healthy meal.
  • Why toddlers behave the way they do.
  • Positive discipline.

We share snacks and stories of what it's like to have a toddler and baby.


Healthy Harvest Boxes -

The Ooknakane Friendship Centre membership is able to partake in our monthly Healthy Harvest Box program. The box is filled with fruits and vegetables. The cost is $5.00 and there is only one bin allowed per family. This is on a first come first serve basis as we have a limit on the number of boxes that we provide, and you must be a member to participate in this program.

Elders lunches are the second Thursday of every month from 12:00 - 2:00pm
