The Family Place started in 1995 with the mission to help improve the lives of families by providing family support and education. Throughout the nearly 23 years of operation, thousands of Weyburn and area children and parents have been involved in the programs.
With a new year started, the programs of the Family Place have also started up again.
"We run Mondays and Wednesdays," explains Chrissy Lohse, Program Director at The Family Place.
"Our Monday programs start at 9:30 a.m. The first one is called 'Bakers to Be' and that's just cooking with kids. A lot of fun, messy things, some healthy things, some cupcakes, just a variety of different things and they get to get some hands-on cooking."
"After that we run Craft, Craze N' Play and that starts at 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and that's just geared to younger children actually, 2 to 4-year-olds."
This program includes an opportunity for moms to visit afterwards.
Smiles and Tears is for moms to bring newborns up to around one year of age and runs on Monday afternoons.
"It's just a chance for them to come visit, get out of the house, meet new moms in the community, share information, ideas with each other and then we bring in a variety of guest speakers on occasion and baby crafts."
On Wednesdays, Creation Station gives children messy playtime to learn science. Wednesday mornings also have a swim program for children to have a safe and fun time at the Weyburn Leisure Centre Pool and learn basic swimming skills. Smiles and Tears happen again on Wednesday afternoons.
Lohse also adds that the first term went really well and that the swimming and baking classes were the most popular with the children.
