Young Parent Program

The Colt Young Parent Program is a District program designed to meet the needs of pregnant and parenting youth and young adults. The program is staffed by a Richmond School District teacher and a Family Support Worker. It also has a licensed daycare on-site.  To accommodate the needs of young parents, the Colt program offers individualized, self-paced educational programs.  These programs are created by the teacher with each student, to meet high school graduation requirements and a variety of post-secondary prerequisites and pathways, including both academic and remedial programs. 

Along with the academic component, students receive support from a Family Support Worker.  Some examples of this support include: parenting and life skills information, counselling, crisis intervention, connecting with community professionals, advocacy for students, outreach services, community relations, and applying for post-secondary education.

Our on-site daycare is licensed for 12 children, newborn to 3-years old. Our staff is comprised of Early Childhood Educators (ECE) who are knowledgeable in all areas of childhood development. Each day is designed to provide a balance of activities, which include indoor and outdoor play in our fenced, on-site playground. Throughout the day, children are provided with healthy food.
