“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.”

Summer Highlights

We celebrated Multicultural Day on June 27th with a parade, BBQ, live entertainment including Taiko drumming and a special story time for families. Thanks to funding from Government of Canada.

Our summer preschool is running until Aug 15. The children are enjoying lots of outdoor play and exploration with the help of our summer students and volunteers!

We are fortunate to be able to operate Fraserlands Family Drop- In for the month of July and it was very busy. The drop-in will close in August and will re-open September 9th with a new time of 10:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
