Mother's First Group
This group offers a safe space where first-time moms with children under one can come together to talk about all of the new experiences that come with being a first-time parent. This group will give new moms the opportunity to build community connections with other new moms and to learn about different techniques, tools, and resources.
Baby & Me
This group offers caregivers with babies 0-12 months in a toddler fee zone to come to the Hinton Family centre to enjoy some unstructured play time which promotes play between caregiver and child. Whether it's playing with the toys or just meeting new families; everyone is guaranteed to have a good time.
