The years between birth and school age are a critical time in a child’s life. The experiences that children have in the early years influence their future health, well-being and life-long learning.

School District No. 27 offers many free early learning programs for pre-school children to attend with their parents / caregiver. British Columbia’s Early Learning Framework is a document that is intended to guide and support early childhood educators and others in providing rich early learning experiences for children from birth to kindergarten.  The following document will be of interest for families with young children.
