Kiwassa Childcare Awards 2016
Award winning Kiwassa Childcare Centres
Kiwassa Neighbourhood House is proud to announce that 2016 has been an award winning year for Hastings Park Childcare Centre and Kiwassa Variety Club Daycare. Both centres were chosen for these awards based on the recommendations of the families they serve. Readers of the Vancouver Courier got a chance to nominate and vote for their favourite service providers in the City. Hastings Park Childcare, located on the PNE grounds and operated by Kiwassa since 2011, was chosen as the top preschool/daycare in the Lifestyles and Services category. This is a very busy centre offering care for infants, toddlers, 2½–5 year olds, after school care for elementary school students, and early morning care seven days a week for children whose parents work with the horses at the racetrack.
After an open call for nominations, ten childcare providers from across British Columbia were selected to receive Child Care Awards of Excellence in one of five categories: provincial, innovation, local government, leadership and Aboriginal. Kiwassa’s Variety Club Daycare was chosen to receive the provincial award for a childcare centre. This centre, located in the neighbourhood house itself, offers childcare to children aged 2½–5. This vibrant program features a hot lunch program and an inclusive, play-based program for 25 children. Staff have training in basic ECE, special needs, and Seeds of Empathy – a program that promotes early literacy and empathy towards others.
