Early Learning Workshops

Due to the current pandemic, the service is offered to one family at a time by appointment only.

For children aged 5 years and under and their parents.
The goal of these workshops is to encourage your child’s curiosity, confidence, independence, self-esteem, and overall healthy development.

There are activities twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday mornings, at the Centre Lac-Brome in Lac-Brome (Knowlton). The Monday morning workshop is for children only. The Wednesday morning workshop is for parents and children together. The program lasts for 30 weeks, with breaks at Christmas, Easter and Spring Break.

Community Kitchens - unavailable

This service is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Community kitchens are small groups of people who meet on a regular basis to prepare meals which they then can take home. Joining a community kitchen can save you time and money, as well as being a fun way to learn new recipes and meet new people.

The Centre Lac-Brome’s kitchen and cooking equipment are available for use by local community kitchens.
