“The programs made my family more aware of child development and building strong relationships.”

“My kids enjoy meeting different children and enjoy meeting new people as well.”

“I have learned to socialize with other ethnic groups, learn their culture, language and how they care for their children.”

“Family programs made a big difference for me and my children.”

“Family place programs have given my child an opportunity to interact with children her age and expand her motor skills and language skills.”

“South Vancouver Family Place is a great place for my kids to learn and make friends.”
