It used to take a literal village to raise a child. Somewhere along the way, humans shifted, in many ways for the better, but our connection to others is sometimes lost or diluted. Wymbin wants to be part of your village, supporting you to raise incredible humans.
At Wymbin, our intentions are always rooted in opportunity. With every interaction there is an opportunity to help your child build knowledge, resilience, patience, emotional regulation, curiosity, compassion, and connection to themselves + others.
We wholeheartedly embody nature, creativity, connection, yoga + mindfulness in all that we do. Our mission is to help children + youth better understand themselves + the world around them.
We focus on building capacity, enabling our youth to reach their unique potential
as the incredible humans that they are.
Donations collected from our November + December virtual Family Yoga classes will go to Calgary Reads to support their current fundraising efforts.
DID YOU KNOW?
1 in 4 Canadian children grow up in a home without books.
By age 3, children from the wealthiest and poorest homes are separated by a 4-million word gap. Children without access to books and family reading time are at risk of entering kindergarten without school readiness. Worse yet, if a child doesn’t achieve grade-level reading by grade 3, it’s unlikely they’ll ever catch up to their peers.
Calgary Reads' initiatives aim to enrich our community and children’s reading lives by:
Getting a child their very own book through their Book Bank, Little Red Reading House and partnerships with community agencies and public health nurses who bring books to families at immunization points.
Helping families start early & develop strong reading role models through their programs, such as LENA Start and wee read.
Creating safe, fun reading spaces in our community at agencies such as Discovery House, Families Matter & CUPS.
