Flora House serves children and youth ranging from ages 6-14 years through a variety of programs. In a neighborhood fraught with violence and negative influences, we provide a safe place for these individuals to attend after school. Our children and youth receive guidance on homework, nutritious snacks, positive peer relationships and loving mentoring from the adult supervisors. In addition we encourage participation in activities that promote healthy living (fitness and nutrition) and field trips that expand the knowledge of the community and opportunities that await them such as higher learning and safe living.

LAPP Program at Anishinabe Fellowship Centre: (Sept-June)
The LAPP program helps children aged 1-5 gain important Pre-Kindergarten knowledge such as counting, colors and sorting. Caregivers must attend with their child so they can learn how to nurture and teach their children at home, in a way that promotes literacy and learning. The purpose of the program is to aid in the development important skills through learning-based play and interaction with other children. We monitor the children during playtime and provide them with a healthy snack.
Caregivers in the Learn and Play group attend to learn how to engage with their children in a safe place with other like-minded individuals. Many come from backgrounds where loving and engaged playing with children may not have been experienced in their own childhood. The program seeks to help caregivers learn how use engaged playing as well as how to genuinely show their love for their children.
The program operates on Wednesdays at 1PM-3PM at 287 Laura St (Anishinabe Fellowship Centre). Bus tickets are provided as needed. Please contact The Parish Social Worker, Susan Currie at 204 – 942 – 8682 ext 224 for more information.
