Activities:

Family Connections Parent Link Centre


We would like to remind parents/caregivers that, when attending the Family Connections Parent Link Centre activities, wet snowy/muddy footwear needs to be removed before entering the play area. We recommend that you bring a clean pair of footwear to change into as socks can be slippery on the floor and if we need to leave the building in a hurry there will not be time to find and put on your other footwear.

Please bring your own "travel mug" with lid for hot drinks and a water bottle for water for you or your child, when attending programs with the Family Connections Parent Link. This mug or water bottle should be non-breakable. The Family Connections Parent Link Centre will continue to have coffee and tea available at most of our programs.

Thank you for helping us to be kind to our planet!

Technology Free Zone!

The goal for the Family Connections Parent Link Centre is to provide a safe and fun environment for our families to play together in. To this end we have a new policy that we will be introducing immediately to all our programs; it is now the Policy of Huntington Hills Community Association that our programs be technology free.

This means that we are asking you to put your cell phones, tablets, etc. away while you are at our programs. Please do not talk, text, play games, etc while you are in the play groups. We understand that there will be times that it is necessary for you to use your device, and we ask that you do so outside of the play space, after ensuring your child is safe by asking someone else to watch them, or by taking them with you. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to talk to one of our staff about them.
