Families and Schools Together is an innovative, collaborative prevention and parent involvement program in which whole families gather at school and participate in specific, fun, research-based activities aimed at strengthening families, empowering parents and building healthy communities.

This eight-week program in the Region of Peel, is offered in elementary schools for children (ages 5 to 9) to support healthy child development. The whole family is invited to participate in fun activities that strengthen relationships with the family. Involvement of the school’s principal and teachers further builds the relationship between the family and school staff.
