Dear West Side Family Place Community,

March marks one full year of living with Covid-19. Although life is very different than it was a year ago some things remain true. Our need for community, connection and love all remains. Staff at family place have been looking for new and creative ways to welcome families to our programs whether they be in person or virtual. We look forward to continuing to meet in small groups in safe settings throughout the spring and summer. All of us at West Side Family Place send our love to you and your family. Stay safe!

Please see Program Schedule for a complete list of our programs and registration details.

Registration will begin on Monday by phone at 9:30am for all sessions that week. Registration will continue throughout the week from 9:30am to noon until all sessions are full. Please call 604-738-2819. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for regular updates about program availability.

  

Before joining us, please review our COVID-19 Safety Protocols.
