Supporting Children & Families in the East Kootenay

The communities of the East Kootenay are dedicated to enriching family and community life by providing information on accessible social and educational programs, resources and services for parents/caregivers and their children (prenatal to six years).

We envision communities where children have a healthy start in life, are safe and secure, and have access to a range of learning activities to strengthen their readiness to learn. Current focus areas include screen time public awareness campaigns, aboriginal education and engagement and parent workshops.
