Family Connections is a content rich program based on the concept of spiral learning – key topics and skills are introduced and then revisited in more depth throughout the Family Connections program. Our goal is for participants to get as much out of the program as possible and a commitment to attending all 12 sessions is important, so key information is received. Missing more than two sessions will make it very difficult to get as much out of the program as it offers. If you miss more than two classes, please discuss with your leaders the possibility of re-joining the waiting list.

If you are unable to attend a session, please contact ____ on ______

We hope you get a lot of enjoyment and benefit from the knowledge, skills and support you will receive from this program.

 Kind regards,

Lindsey Harman
