Family Oriented Program Sessions (FOPS)

A message from Parkland School Division Learning Services:

December 6, 2017 - Family Oriented Program Sessions (FOPS) are sessions for Early Education and Kindergarten students that are planned to support the development of children in addition to their attendance in class, and are to be completed outside of regular classroom time.

FOPS are offered in a variety of ways, including home visits, sessions at your child’s school and group activities throughout the division and community.  Most sessions are parent-child interactive, and childcare is available upon request for parent-only information sessions.

FOPS are intended to:

  • Increase parent knowledge to support your child’s learning and developmental goals
  • Support the goals and objectives of the Individual Program Plan (IPP)
  • Promote interactions with your child in new ways
  • Provide an opportunity to connect with other families
  • Build on family strengths
  • Provide you with an opportunity to interact with staff

Some sessions offered may not fit the goals of your child’s IPP, but we encourage you to attend those that are of interest to you or you feel your child could benefit from - you know your child best! Parents can register for any session regardless of the location.

Please see below for a list of FOPS sessions remaining in the first half of the school year. All are FREE to attend, but space is limited, so be sure to register ASAP!

More sessions for February-June 2017 will be announced soon, so stay tuned for more information.
