Inkster Parent Child Coalition

About the IPCC:
The Inkster Parent Child Coalition offers a variety of programs and resources to support families in our community. We have a strong focus on the early years because we know that early experiences matter- The first five years of a child’s life are the biggest preparation for future successes!

We base our programming on the most recent Early Development Instrument (EDI) results. The data which make up the EDI results is collected with the help of Inkster kindergarten teachers and financial supported by Healthy Child Manitoba. The EDI results show us how ready kids are for school and how we can best invest our time and resources to support the development or the young ones in our community.

FREE IPCC Weekday Programming:

Grab the kids & come down to join the fun! Our programs are designed to serve as a time for Inkster children and families to have fun together through play. Help your children to socialize with other little ones and meet other parents/caregivers in your neighbourhood! Come experience new things, learn together and build an even stronger relationship with your child. There is no need to bring a snack, as we always provide a tasty and healthy snack to eat together. All our programs are free of charge! No pre-registration needed!

We offer ‘Positive Discipline for Everyday Parenting’, created by Manitoba’s own Dr. Joan Durrant. This program is aimed at parents and caregivers of children of all ages. We also offer the ‘Triple P: the Positive Parenting Program’. Typically, our programs run for eight (8) sessions.

These programs support parents & caregivers in learning how to better:

  1. set & stick with parenting goals,
  2. create a positive home environment for everyone in the family,
  3. understand how children think and feel (which helps us understand why they do the things they do!),
  4. problem solve during challenging parenting situations.
