LIFE Program

Learning in a Fun Environment (LIFE) is focused on the abilities and needs of the individual. Students can work within small groups and each student has an individual program plan that outlines goals and objectives which are unique and relevant to them. For some students, the end goal is to secure a volunteer position or obtain paid employment in the field of their choice. Students work at their own level and pace, with support and guidance from qualified, experienced teachers with online programs to enhance learning of literacy and numeracy concepts that are relevant to real LIFE scenarios! There is also dedicated time to ensure physical activity.

Two qualified Teachers with experience in supporting people with special needs, along with a Job Coach/Job Developer incorporate weekly life-skills workshops, community volunteer placements and outings that support the monthly themes. Each student also has an opportunity to develop their special interests through independent projects via you- tube, presentations or media outlet of their choice. The LIFE program also hosts community persons that deliver specialty workshops at the request of our students.

LIFE also offers a 7 week long Summer Camp, providing theme weeks with less of an emphasis on academics and more time spent on life skills and building social enterprise for sale to the public and overall FUN! Each week has a special outing, outdoor education day and hot lunch day.

You must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul. ~ Gusteau, Ratatouille

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. ~ Dr. Seuss

Our family has fostered with Partners In Parenting for almost ten years. Their heart for children in care is evident. In fact, the founders of Partners In Parenting began as foster parents. The organization has never lost that desire to provide a successful fostering experience for both the child and foster family. As a Partners’ foster family, we benefit from 24 hour/7 days a week support. The on-call system ensures that you can talk with a person rather than a machine whenever help is needed. With this level of support, we are able to confidently provide the love and care of a family for children in care. ~ Mary Ruth

We applied to become foster parents with Partners in Parenting in 1998. We chose Partners in Parenting because it is a small, caring organization that is committed to providing compassionate care to foster children. The organization is unique in providing each family with a Foster Family Supervisor who provides guidance on the many new experiences and challenges in fostering. Foster parents are provided with ongoing training with respect to mental health issues, physical and sexual abuse and the many special needs that affect the children who come into care. As Partners in Parenting foster parents, we work with a wide range of professionals who are committed to foster children. Through this organization, we have developed close friendships with other foster parents whom we have met through monthly meetings and foster family activities. Fostering is a life changing experience and Partners in Parenting and its foster parents are an amazing group to work with and who understand the calling of a foster parent. ~ Bonnie & Claude
