We hope you are settling in well and have adjusted to any changes of routines with your families. Perhaps you are working from home, perhaps you are helping your child or children to complete school work from home. Maybe you are looking for ways to entertain your preschooler, or find activities for the whole family to enjoy. You might even be a young adult, looking for something fun to do!
We thought it might be helpful to share a few resources that might be useful to you and your loved ones. There are some great ideas here for staying entertained and active, learning something new, and accessing supports if you need them. If you are looking for additional information to support your child or youth, please reach out to us. We can work on solutions together.
