Family Day Beliefs:
  • Families are the greatest natural resources to their children.  Families have primary responsibility for the well being of their children.
  • Family support programs help families to successfully parent their children and should be available to all families who need assistance
  • The development of children and their families is influenced by the culture, community and society in which they live.
  • Families know their children best and raise them according to their history, beliefs, cultural background and the unique characteristics of their children.
  • Families are in the best position to know their own strengths and needs.  Building on the capacities of families helps them to raise healthy children.
  • The challenges of parenthood change as children grow and family circumstances change.  Families may need different supports at difference stages of development.
  • Families are empowered to make good decisions when they have access to information about services, supports and resources.  When families make good choices and take action, they improve the well-being of their children, families and communities.
