About Us

Parenting Now is an innovative program in Waterloo Region that is all about creating conversations among parents and other adults…such as grandparents, other family members, neighbours, teachers, coaches, friends….those who care about children and youth.

In our research, we heard that parents learn best from other parents.

This simple yet very profound fact guides everything we do at Parenting Now.

We are also out and about in the community. You can find us at several local community centres, EarlyOn sites or though various programs that are part of services offered within the Region.

Our team of experienced parents are parents who have “been there”. They have experienced the joys and challenges of parenting and they are ready to chat about your parenting journey. They are there to hear your stories, offer tips and strategies and help you connect with other parents or relevant support services.
