Family Resource Programs

Family resource programs at Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House follow the guidelines set by the B.C. Association of Family Resource Programs. Those guidelines include:

  • Providing family-focused programs for children under five years old (however implementing “My Tween and Me” program since 2013).
  • Ensuring programs are of general interest
  • Recognizing the unique strengths and needs of each family
  • Engaging in positive interactions on an individual level
  • Maintaining confidentiality and ethical practices

Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House family resource programs promote a multicultural learning environment that supports children and families from all cultural groups. We believe that children learn through play and that they have the right to be in an environment that is safe, healthy, and free from discrimination and abuse. We have an open door policy and encourage parents to visit, give feedback and participate within the program.

Family Resource Programs cover five core service areas:

  • Family Support
  • Play-based Learning
  • Early learning and Literacy
  • Parent Education and Learning
  • Information and Referrals
