Separation & Divorce Spring Series
Parenting through separation and divorce is difficult for everyone involved. Rural Response for Healthy Children is hosting a series of sessions in May 2018. The series will occur in Goderich on May 9th, 16th and 23rd from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Child care will be provided. To register, please contact Nicole O’Neill at the office.
Saving for School
It is never too late to start saving money for your child’s future education. The Canada Learning Bond (CLB) is money that the Government of Canada deposits directly into a child’s Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) account to help parents get a head start on saving for their child’s education after high school. Contact our Parent Support team for more information or find out more via this link.

Kinderoo At Home
For 13 years, Rural Response for Healthy Children offered the successful Kinderoo program. In an effort to align with our vision to engage and empower parents, we are making changes to theprogram. For 2018, we are replacing the Kinderoo program with a new program, called Kinderoo At Home. If you are interested in learning more about this program, please send us an email with “Kinderoo At Home” in the subject line and we will add you to the mailing list. Note, we will no longer provide the Kinderoo-style program where parents enroll their children for a 6 week summer program.
The knowledgeable team at Rural Response for Healthy Children supports Huron County families. Positive parenting programs and personal safety and social skills programs for children comprise the foundation of services and resources available. Popular reasons families use our education and support services are for relationships (parent/child, parent/parent, parent/school), health (sleep, family meals, personal safety, disabilities, child development and internet use) and life transitions (separation/divorce, school readiness).
We also provide referrals to various agencies supporting Huron County families, such as Huron Respite Network, Huron Perth Center, Choices for Change, Huron County Health Unit, Ontario Early Years and Huron County Housing.
Rural Response for Healthy Children employees and volunteers are proud of the support they offer in the community. Huron County families can have confidence that Rural Response for Healthy Children is a place where professional staff are caring, respectful and provide a safe place to build trust for the resources and education families need to connect, engage and thrive.
