Children’s and Parents’ Program
Wellspring offers an 8-week Children’s and Parents’ Program that bring parents and their children together for family time, networking, conversation about having cancer in the family, and tools to help them cope and express how they are feeling.
Children learn that they are not alone and will be guided by two professional leaders through various topics using age-appropriate communication and therapeutic play activities. While children are together, parents meet separately to address the same topics so that they can continue the conversation, and support of their children at home.
Please note, children participating in this program must be between the ages of 5 and 12. For children under the age of 5, child minding services are available at the centre at no cost while the parents are participating in the program. Please contact the centre to book a time for child minding.
