Parents as Teachers Header
KidsFirst is a home-visiting program designed to support children and families by enhancing parenting knowledge, providing support and building on family strengths.

What can KidsFirst do for you and your family?
KidsFirst realizes everyone wants to be a good parent and every parent wants to have healthy children. We provide support for families to reach these goals.

How does KidsFirst work?
Our program works with families and their children from pregnancy through to 3 years old. We focus on child development, parent-child relationships, and parenting skills.

The Family Wellness Team provides capacity building including training, consultation, reference materials and ongoing support to KidsFirst Regina staff, home and families.

 The Home Visitor will share information about:
• Child care and early learning opportunities for your children
• Child growth and development
• Housing and food security
• Positive parent-child relationships
• Problem-solving and coping skills 
• New ways to play with your child
• Specialized services of interest to you.

"The home visitor taught me new parenting strategies, they have been a great emotional support. I'm being a better mom now, they've helped me to be more understanding of the stages my baby goes through, and to be more confident with myself."
