We are a group of agencies, organizations, and community members who support parents and families with kids aged birth through six years in the Maples, Garden City, West Kildonan, and West St. Paul areas.

We work together to connect the people raising our youngest community members with programs and services that build skills and knowledge in four areas:

  1. Positive parenting
  2. Nutrition and physical health
  3. Literacy and learning
  4. Community capacity

Our collective offerings include parent/caregiver and child programming, daycares, nursery schools, community recreation opportunities, and health services – all key pieces in giving kids the best start on their road to becoming lifelong contributing citizens.

The Importance of Early Years

Research shows that experience-based brain development in the early years affects learning, behavior, and health throughout the life course (The Early Years Study, 1999).

Recognizing that parents are the first, most important, and most lasting teachers in a child’s life, our activities create opportunities for parents and children to participate in quality programming together.
