Group Support for Parents of Toddlers and Preschoolers

A safe space for parents of children aged 2 - 5 years. Let's journey together through the ups and downs of raising our little humans.

Is this group for me?

Coming together as parents to talk about the “hard” stuff helps us remember that we’re not alone and that others struggle through it too.

An opportunity for parents to meet virtually on a weekly basis with a group of 4-6 parents.

This is a safe space to discuss and work through challenging situations you're having with your little ones. Come away feeling more empowered, confident and reassured in your role as a parent.

Sessions are guided by Norette, licensed therapist, who specializes in parenting support.

How does it Work?

  1. Tell us about yourself
  2. Get matched to a group of 5 - 8 parents who are on the same journey as you
  3. Meet your group online weekly for 60-minutes guided by a licenced therapist
  4. $160 / month - covered under extended health insurance
  5. Stay with your group for as long as you want.

* Minimum commitment of 1-month required

As a mother of two, I understand and appreciate the difficulties and struggles that come with parenting and the challenges that arise when navigating the different stages of parenthood. I have worked for over 10 years with parents to support them through the stressors related to being a parent and balancing this identity with other roles in their lives.
