About the program
Artemis Young Parent Program has an on-site infant/toddler centre for young parents who attend Artemis Secondary School. The program supports pregnant teens and young parents under age 20 in a nurturing community while also providing a safe, stimulating environment for their children. The staff of experienced Early Childhood Educators provide responsive care for the children along with building respectful, trusting relationships with their families. There are rich and varied experiences to support all aspects of children’s well-being while nurturing their cultural and familial traditions. The team of ECE’s, Counselors and a Public Health Nurse offers pre-natal and parenting education, individual and group counselling, support and advocacy. Parents are also given the opportunity to connect with other students to share the joys and challenges of parenthood.
