'The Nook' - A Weekly Gathering for parents, nannies and carers

Indeed It Takes A Village

When we allow others to hold us near and dear, to give care, to nourish and nurture us through postpartum, we may notice the haze lifts and becomes a little lighter.  Being supported by others may lighten your world. In the very tough early days of the pandemic, 'our villages' may have closed up and perhaps for some even vanished. 

But we're here to say, we've got you. 

Come to our "weekly" gathering at our Kitsilano location with your child or solo. To listen, to simply just BE and/or to share.  

We have a host of speakers that will be our featured guests. Always seeking to hold space for you and to create opportunity for connection. Something as important as ever in today's society. We look forward to bringing back what we love to do.

Forthcoming  Speakers:
