Parents with their newborn at the Mother-Baby Unit at the Hôpital de la Cité-de-la-Santé.

Brindami program

The Brindami program promotes social behaviour in children aged 0 to 5. The goal is to help children develop basic social and communication skills, help them express emotions, and help them with self-control and problem-solving. In Laval, the Brindami program is available at a number of educational childcare facilities (CPEs, family day cares, and private day cares).

 

Parent de tout-petit… quel défi! program

This program for parents is a complement to the Brindami program for children. Parents can attend meetings that serve as a bridge between their day care service and the home so that they can reinforce their child’s development of social skills.   
These meetings are held at different family community organizations, often with the help of a CLSC staff member.

Y’a personne de parfait (Y’APP) program

This program includes eight meetings for the parents of children aged 5 and under. The goal is to:

  • Help parents better understand their child’s development.
  • Help parents learn and use new tools to have a good relationship with their child.
  • Make parents aware of the importance of meeting their own needs.
  • Help parents develop greater confidence in their different roles.
