Community Resources

We know it takes a village to raise a child; having the support of a community can help families feel capable, confident and ensure you have the tools you need to feel successful on your parenting journey. Below are a list of community resources. While Allegro Child Care Centre is not affiliated with these organizations, we value their benefits and contributions.
