Parents and caregivers wanting to speak with a nurse about their child’s health and learn more about early childhood are invited to drop in to the new Tiny Talk program.

The free Alberta Health Services service gives families with babies from birth to 12 months old, or pre-walking age, the chance to meet with a public health nurse and other parents, weigh and measure their child, and ask questions about early childhood.

The program is being held the first and third Thursday of every month in the Linda Smith Story Room at the Grande Prairie Public Library, 9839 103 Ave. This month’s sessions are on
March 7 and 21.

Various topics will be discussed each week, including physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. Each session will be about 90 minutes long, with 30 minutes of it being structured programming and the remainder of the time for questions and building a parental community.

Residents who require pregnancy, birth and/or early childhood support can also contact Grande Prairie Public Health Centre at 780-513-7500.
