This website is a result of the Aboriginal Community's desire to have an ECE website dedicated to programs and services that service Aboriginal children and their families. It is an initiative of the Success By 6© Aboriginal Engagement Strategy, South Vancouver Island.
For more than five years the Aboriginal Engagement Coordinator has been consulting with the community on ways that improved information sharing between communities and information to families around programs and services offered to children could be achieved. A key recommendation was to develop an Aboriginal website. This website offers information to all community members on initiatives happening in local Nations/Districts and Urban Aboriginal agencies around the early years of child development. This is grass roots driven, community initiative recommended by the Aboriginal Community to better serve our Community. Thank you for visiting!
The Vision of Success By 6 is to build the capacity of parents and communities to support children ages 0 to 6 to become healthy, safe, secure, successful learners, socially engaged and responsible.
Success By 6 is an initiative dedicated to ensuring those children ages 0 to 6 have access to programs that support their healthy growth and development. Success By 6 builds community through engaging citizens in early childhood development and funding programs that strengthen services for young children and families.
Success By 6 believes in the importance of building long-term relationships with First Nations communities, Metis organizations and urban Aboriginal agencies in BC. Recognizing the unique and diverse Aboriginal community cultures and populations in BC, Success By 6 works to establish authentic connections, relationships and partnerships to support and enhance the lives of Aboriginal children and families in BC.
