Welcome to the homepage for the West Kootenay Early Years Initiatives! This page will connect you with the various projects, programs and events that are underway in the West Kootenay region to support parents and their children.
“Children who have good early childhood experience before age six in stimulating and nurturing environments have better outcomes throughout their life. The earlier they have these experiences, the better the results. They have better school grades, better self-esteem, better social skills, a better record of employment, fewer social problems, fewer health problems and are less likely to be teen parents, use drugs or be involved in crime.”
- From “Reversing the Real Brain Drain – The Early Years Study” McCain & Mustard
