Kinder Links programming is supported by Child and Youth Services, Department of Families.

KINDER LINKS

Kinder Links programs provide young families—with children birth to age five—with the opportunity to play, learn, and connect with each other. These FREE parent-child programs feature fun, educational ways to explore literacy, numeracy, physical health and well-being, and creativity through art experiences, rhymes, stories, activities, and games. Kinder Links programs are an excellent way for young children to develop a lifelong passion for learning, develop their skills and self-confidence, and help prepare them for the adventure of school!

Kinder Links programs are a welcoming, inclusive place where parents/caregivers can meet other families from the community, develop new friendships, and share parenting resources.

We are proud to offer high quality parent-child programming seven days a week to meet the needs of families living in River East Transcona neighbourhoods. Join in the fun mornings, afternoons, evenings, and weekends from September to June.

  • Kinder Links Registration & Waiting Lists
    Interested in registering for a Kinder Links program? Contact Kinder Links at kinderlinks@retsd.mb.ca or 204.669.4043. Please note the official registration date/time listed on Kinder Links publications. To be fair to all interested participants, early registrations cannot be accepted or processed. Due to heavy email volume on registration day, it may take up to 90 minutes for your email confirmation to arrive. We thank you for your patience and understanding. Following the official Kinder Links registration day, registration is ongoing.

    To register for a program, please provide the following:


     - Parent/caregiver name
     - Names and ages of all children to attend the program
     - Home address
     - Home/cellphone number
     - Email address where you wish to be contacted
     - Preferred program location, day of week, and time

    When classes are full, families will be placed on a waiting list and contacted when space becomes available. If you find yourself unable to start or continue your program, please contact Kinder Links at kinderlinks@retsd.mb.ca or 204.669.4043, as other families may be eager to attend. 


  • Program Evaluations

    Following the final class, all participants will be sent a link to complete an online evaluation. Your comments and suggestions are very important to us, help guide our programming decisions, and are shared in reports to our funders.

  • Song Sheets

    Participants will receive an email with the songs our facilitators plan to teach during circle time. We will learn the songs/chants together so don't worry if you don't know the rhymes already. At our parent-child programs, we make a point of repeating songs several times to help your family learn and enjoy the rhymes. Printed copies of the song sheet will be available upon request for your use at home.
