Family Programs

Cold Lake and District FCSS and the Parent Link Centre provide a number of programs for families and their children. For details about current programs, including the dates, times and locations, see the latest Program Guide, or contact the Cold Lake and District FCSS Centre.

Some of the core family programs are:


This free, drop-in program is designed to provide a supportive atmosphere for fathers and male caregivers of young children to play actively with their child.  Active play encourages curiosity about the world and supports children to follow rules and instructions.  Using hands-on, preschool level activities, we aim to engage and inspire men to spend time and have fun with their children.

Rhymes that Bind:

This is a free, registration required program that is designed as an oral family literacy program for parents and their children, ages 0-3, to attend together.  It encourages parents to sing, rhyme, talk, and play with their children as much as possible.  The program introduces parents to various ways they can support their child’s early literacy and language experiences and, in doing so, helps promote healthy family relationships.

Family Fun Nights

This is a free, drop-in program where you and your family can get to know your local FCSS, Parent Link Centre, and meet other families in the community.  Come to one, or all, of our Family Fun Nights and learn something new, enjoy a tasty light meal, and spend quality time with your family!  Family Fun Nights are from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  See the Program Guide for the latest details or contact Cold Lake and District FCSS or the Cold Lake Parent Link Centre.

Family Resource and Toy Lending Library
