Aboriginal Supported Childhood Development and the SASH program

The SASH program provides an atmosphere for children and parents to connect through games, learning, songs, snacks, and fun. Children, six and under, and their caregivers are invited to join us in our ten week program that is focused on attachment and bonding through group activities.

With a focus on Aboriginal cultures, this group will give new and exciting ideas on parenting and interacting with children, with an emphasis on culturally rich activities, learning and games.
