A Note from the Coordinator . . .

Hello, my name is Luisa and I am the Coordinator for the Blackfalds Parent Link Centre! Blackfalds is a young, vibrant, family-friendly community. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to connect, support and work with the families of Blackfalds!

Parenting can be a joyful journey. It can also be one of our most challenging roles. Families, children and communities thrive when we all support and encourage one another. Blackfalds Parent Link is a place for families to come together, to connect, to build relationships with other parents and strengthen the relationship with their child.

Parent Link offers various programs including structured and non-structured play groups, musical classes, early literacy, parent education and support groups. We have staff trained in Triple P Positive Parenting. We also understand child development and can help you track the progress of your child.

Our summer programs will be located at the Blackfalds Community Hall and our programs in the spring, fall and winter will be located at the Blackfalds Multi-Plex.

Stay connected through Facebook for the latest information on program locations and times. Check out our calendar to see all the fun programs we offer!

The Blackfalds Parent Link Centre is pleased to offer the ASQ and ASQ:SE developmental screening tools online!
