Parenting Across Cultures

i Oct 25th No Comments by

The Whistler Welcome Centre is delighted to announce the beginning of our new program, Parenting Across Cultures, beginning on Wednesday November 1st. With thanks to generous funding from the Community Foundation of Whistler, Sea to Sky Community Services and Whistler Multicultural Network, the Welcome Centre is able to offer this program.

Parenting Across Cultures is a 6 week program, every Wednesday morning at 10-12, from November 1st until December 6th 2017. We will meet at the Maury Young Arts Centre (formerly Millenium Place). Registration is required and babies are welcome too. The program will be facilitated by certified counsellor, Lana Lutke, as well as Welcome Centre and Sea to Sky Community Services staff.

Settling into life in a new culture is a huge adjustment and it can take many years before you feel fully adapted. Becoming a parent is certainly a joyful time in your life but it can also bring about new challenges as you continue your adjustment to a new culture. Parenting Across Cultures offers a safe and supportive environment for immigrant moms to meet, connect and share their experiences as multicultural parents. The program aims to help you be a successful multicultural parent in Whistler and to help you build a support network as a newcomer to Canada.

Come and join us to celebrate you, your babies and your culture!

Halloween Drop-in

i Oct 24th No Comments by

Halloween is here next week! Come and join us this Friday, October 23th to celebrate Halloween with us. At 10 AM we will join Whistler library program “Preschool Story Time” and then we will be carving pumpkins together.

Do you know why we have pumpkins on Halloween?

Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns is a popular Halloween tradition that originated hundreds of years ago in Ireland. Back then, however, jack-o’-lanterns were made out of turnips or potatoes; it wasn’t until Irish immigrants arrived in America and discovered the pumpkin that a new Halloween ritual was born.

I will have a few pumpkins to carve, so make sure you come on time to create your masterpiece 🙂

You can also wear a mask so we can have a real Halloween Party 🙂
