FRP MEMBERS

FRP Members include agencies and organizations that operate an FRP. FRPs are parent/child interactive centres for families with children 0–6 years. The programs reflect the diversity of the community, and services are designed to strengthen parenting skills, provide stimulating environments for children, and promote family and community engagement. FRPs engage with families through five core areas of service:

  1. Family Support
  2. Play-based Learning
  3. Early Learning and Literacy
  4. Parent Education
  5. Information and Referrals

FRPs are based out of local community centres, rec centres, or neighbourhood houses, or operate as a stand-alone service. FRPs go by a variety of names, including but not limited to Family Place, Family Centre, Military Family Resource Centre, Early Years Centre, Parent/Family Literacy Centre, and Aboriginal Friendship Centre.
