Drop In Programs

Families venture out monthly on a group field trip.  Field trips include going to places such as the Vancouver Public Library, picnics in local parks, Steveston Pumpkin Patch, and Marpole Fire Station. These field trips expose parents to local resources for families, and increase positive involvement in community life. In addition, three times a year we participate in Marpole Oakridge Community Festivals.

We celebrate many diverse multi-cultural festive celebrations.  See our monthly calendar for details.

Potlucks are on the last Friday of the month and are paired with monthly Birthday Celebrations.  It is a great opportunity for socializing and for children and adults to try out new foods from many cultures.

Every Thursday at 9am, bread donated by Cobs Bread on 4th Avenue, Vancouver is available for FREE!
