Central Parkland Parent Link Network....

providing support, parent education, and early childhood development opportunities.

Parent Link Centres believe that children enter the world full of potential. The extent to which a child's potential is realized is strongly influenced by early experiences. Children thrive in families and communities that protect their health and safety, nurture and respect them, and provide opportunities for involvement with caring adults, stimulating play and safe exploration of their environment.

What is the Ages & Stages Questionnaire?

Central Parkland Parent Link Network offers the Ages & Stages Questionnaire for parents to use to give them a "snapshot" of their child's development.

This is a simple questionnaire that the parent fills out. It is based on the age of the child and asks specific questions based on the child's development in the following areas:

  • Communication
  • Gross motor
  • Fine motor
  • Problem-solving
  • Personal-social

What is the Ages and Stages Questionnaire - SE?

The Ages & Stages Questionnaires® :Social Emotional (ASQ:SE2) is a first level screening tool that is designed to identify children who may be at risk for social or emotional difficulties. There is tremendous opportunity during the first few years of a child's life to identify and address potential social-emotional concerns. This is at the heart of ASQ®:SE-2. It is modeled after the ASQ®-3 and is tailored to identify and exclusively screen social and emotional behaviors.

Time With Baby | Parent Education Evaluation Support, April - June 2018
Parent Link is a place my family can go to grow in a safe place. I know my family can breathe (much needed) love, and feel supported. :)
Family Fun Night | Parent Education Evaluation Support, April - June 2018
It’s definitely a support group that is always welcoming people. Specially for me with not family any near. It is always great to come to the groups and listening to suggestions that had definitely helped one at specific struggles.
Baby Bits | Parent Education Evaluation Support, April - June 2018
Great opportunity to meet other families with kids and do a variety of activities. We have made great friends through PL connections and my son is in kindergarten/hockey with 3 kids we met as babies through PL. He still loves to come back on days off of school.
Early Childhood Development Program | April - June 2018
Lacombe Parent Link has been a place that my whole family enjoys. We are always greeted by friendly staff, who each knows us by mane. The centre is an amazing resource; full of learning stations, 0-6-year-old activities, toys, parent resources, and a feeling of home away from home. I would hope that every young family comes and takes part in what they have to offer. Parent Link is a great way to get to know other families in our area. It’s the place my kids ask if we are going every morning. One of the best things for any young family is that there many opportunities to drop in, It’s FREE and the coffee is always on!
