Family Resource Network
To ensure that bilingualism is acquired at an early age by francophone children, it is important to integrate the French language in their daily lives as soon as possible. Choosing activities and services in French (daycare, babysitter, playgroup, nursery, etc.) contributes to the construction of a francophone identity for children. It also allows children to enrich their vocabulary, better express themselves and include French in their routines.
It is generally not easy for francophone parents to find institutions their young children can attend since they live in an overwhelmingly English-speaking environment.
With this reality in mind, FPFA provides its members with lists that allow parents to access community resources more easily, without having to conduct time consuming and inefficient research.
Institut Guy-Lacombe de la famille
