Early learning "… refers to the emerging and expanding of young children's physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and creative capacities ... Early learning is the foundation for lifelong learning…"
~B.C. Early Learning Framework
We believe all young children are unique, capable and full of potential. We are committed to partnering with parents and community agencies to support the overall well-being and healthy development of young children.
We offer a variety of programs to support early learning for children before they enter school. Our programs highlight the importance of oral language and play-based learning as foundations for cognitive, emotional and social development.
