Weigh 'n' Grow

A Public Health Nurse from Sun Country Health Region is on-site to weigh and measure your child(ren) and to answer any questions that you may have.


Infant Massage

Infant Massage has benefits for both baby and parent. Massage helps create quality time where you can learn to better understand your baby’s cues which enhance communication and fosters trust and confidence, deepening the bond. Other benefits of massage are: improved sleep patterns, stimulates the immune system, improved digestion and elimination, eases tension and anxiety, encourages muscular coordination and develops life long relaxation skills. This program is run by a Registered Infant Massage Therapist who is also a Doula and Early Childhood Educator.


Comfort Play & Teach

Research tells us the first five years are pivotal to children’s ability to learn and create, to love, to trust and to develop a strong sense of themselves. What’s more, how we care for our children in their earliest years has a profound impact on how productive, resilient, compassionate and confident they become as adults. Being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs you will ever do but at the same time very challenging. That’s why this parent education program was developed by Invest in Kids. Estevan Family Resource Centre staff trained in using this program.


Parent‘s 1,2,3,4

The purpose of this wonderful program is to provide training and support for families experiencing the dynamic changes of early childhood development. This program has been designed for all parents of young children. The program is for three sessions, most of the program focuses on the “how to” rather than the “why”. This program is offered by trained staff from Estevan Family Resource Centre and Estevan Parenting Skills Education Program


Active Parenting Now

This program is for parents with children 5-12 years of age. Active Parenting Now is a six session video based learning experience that teraches a comprehensive model of parenting. The program goals are to teach parents to communicate effectively with children, prevent the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, discipline while teaching responsibility, encourage the development of self esteem, redirect misbehaviour and sidestep power struggles, and explore and encourage non-violent conflict resolution inside the home and out. Offered by trained staff from Estevan Family Resource Centre.


Active Parenting Families In Action

A video based interactive learning experience for parents and teens to take together. The program is six two hour sessions and works best with 10-15 participants. Two facilitators guide parent groups and teen groups separately then half way through each session the parents and teens join together. Families are more alike than different. All families of teens and preteens struggle with such issues as independence, emerging sexuality, the risks of drug and violence, discipline, communication and problem solving. Trained Staff from Estevan Family Resource Centre – program can be loaned out.
