Thank you BCAA, On Side Restoration and United Way of the Lower Mainland for an amazing Day of Caring on May 26! More than 80 volunteers hammered, sawed, planted, painted and generally transformed buildings and grounds. And all just in time for the 41st Annual Alexandra Festival, where people were loving the new picnic tables and firepit benches. As always, we are very grateful!

Alex House is all about gathering people together to talk about things that matter to them. In the last few months we have heard from families that have some practical questions about their young children…. ‘My child is hitting…. is this normal?’ ‘My child has tantrums all the time…what do I do?’ ‘My child won’t share ... is this normal?’ ‘My child won’t listen…what do I do?’ ‘What does my child need to ‘know’ in preparation for kindergarden?’
