I’m am a single mother of 2 young children, I’m going stir crazy always being home but I don’t have the money to go out and do stuff all the time I’m looking for advice on some free or cheap things to do with my kids,

As well as I’m also looking to get a Break my family won’t help with my kids at all I have no friends that will help I just need to be able to clear my head and breath on my own for an hour or two I just don’t have anyone to turn to to ask for help so I guess I’m just looking for someone certified to help me out

  2. Servus place in St. Albert offers Friday night care for 2-3 hours. Not sure how much it costs. Sounds like great fun for the kids and then you get a break as well.

  9. Parks are free, spray parks, the various summer festivals can be free or cheap, get a city of edmonton leisure access pass for the rec centers, admission to zoo etc, they are avail for low income people. See if your community has a community center were they have playgroups etc. Sometimes they have support groups for moms with free child care. The library offera great programming , we utilized it often before we moved. As for breaks, that’s what naptime/bedtime is for lol. Or make friends with a neighbor with young kids and alternate playtime for the kids so each of you gets a break once a week or everyother week. Host a small gathering of friends in your own home, you get time with friends to chat and de-stress and don’t have to worry about childcare.

    I’m a single mom in Edmonton as well. However I do have the support of my friends and family, and it can be incredibly difficult even with the support. I have an almost 6 year old girl, and we have mastered the “free entertainment” in Edmonton front. Feel free to PM me, maybe we can hook up a play date!
