The City of Red Deer is starting a new program that will bring free activities and resources to young families.
Kidz Curbside Connections will visit two neighbourhoods every Tuesday and Thursday in July and August. The events for children under six years will take place outdoors and be dependent on the weather.
“Neighbourhood connections and local support are important for young families, now more than ever,” said social planning supervisor Bobby-Jo Stannard.
“The program will offer young families early childhood development resources, fun, free activities, and an opportunity to connect with new people in their neighbourhood, in a safe way.”
Families will be offered a free, take-home activity kit.
Families are asked to only attend events in their own neighbourhood, and all activities will be held with the latest COVID-19 safety measures in place.
“We have selected activities to minimize common touch points and will ask that all attendants practice physical distancing,” Stannard said.
The first event is scheduled for Tuesday at the Bower Community Association, 85 Boyce St., from 3 to 5 p.m.
Future dates will be shared on the city website and social media as they are confirmed.
