Because being a parent is the finest, most important work you will ever do...
A warm and welcoming place in the community
Are you looking for a place to relax, chat with other parents & caregivers, or just have some “adult time”? If so, Maggie’s Place WELCOMES you!
We offer a place away from the routines of home, where you and your children can play, learn, and meet other parents. Maggie’s Place also offers FREE programs for adults and children including prenatal/postnatal support, child development programs for preschoolers, and programs for school aged children, youth and teens.
Maggie’s Place will gladly answer your questions regarding parenting, pregnancy, nutrition, and many more issues. Call or visit us today! Remember, all Maggie’s Place programs and services are free of charge!
It's important to keep safe while out enjoying the sun!
Cover up. Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts, pants, and a wide-brimmed hat made from breathable fabric. When you buy sunglasses, make sure they provide protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
Limit your time in the sun, especially between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Drink plenty of cool liquids (especially water) before you feel thirsty.
School supplies will be available for pick up at Maggie’s Place (11 Elmwood Drive) from Monday, August 28th to Friday, September 1st.

A Family Resource Centre is a warm and welcoming place in the community where any family member can go, not only in times of need, but as a regular part of day-to-day life. Family Resource Centres offer parent education classes, child development activities, parent-to-parent support groups, health information, referrals and many other programs, activities and services. These services are modified and added to, depending on the needs and desires of local families. Maggie's Place programs and services are offered free of charge.
Family Resource Centres are unique in their approach to working with families: they build families’ strengths and capacities, serve as a hub for the community, work for positive social change, and offer help in a supportive environment. Parents act as resources in many capacities, from serving on a decision-making board, participating in Centre programs and learning job skills.
