Bowmont Families Together

carya is proud to be a longstanding member of the Bowmont community. Through Bowmont Families Together (formerly known as Ready 4 Learning), we offer a number of ways for community residents to engage in opportunities and participate in programs that help strengthen their own resiliency as well as that of the community as a whole.

Bowmont Families Together offers early development programs for 0-5 year olds and their caregivers, opportunities to discuss and learn about parenting, facilitated peer to peer groups for mothers, financial empowerment workshops and community-based activities and events.

We encourage Bowness, Montgomery and Greenwood Village residents to get to know their neighbors and engage in their communities because we are stronger together.

You must live in Bowness, Montgomery or Greenwood Village to access these programs.

For 0-5 Year Olds and their Caregivers
Giving your child the tools for success starts at birth and we’re here to help!

 

Parent-Child Mother Goose

Parent-Child Mother Goose is a group experience for parents and their children ages 0-3.  Residents from the communities of Bowness, Montgomery and Greenwood Village come together in a circle with their children to learn songs and rhymes that will become tools to calm, redirect and connect with their children.   It is a wonderful way to bond with your child and a great way to meet other parents in your neighbourhood in a supportive, welcoming environment

We are offering Parent-Child Mother Goose in Bowness and Montgomery this spring, as well as two special versions of Parent-Child Mother Goose:

Registration is ongoing. To register, contact Lisa at 403.519.7591 or LisaH@caryacalgary.ca
