Revelstoke is hoping to establish one of the first v in B.C.

The Revelstoke Childcare Society has applied to host one of the test sites being funded by the governments new Office of the Early Years.

“They put out an idea of how to improve access to early years, how many communities can work together and an invitation to put together some projects to allow our community to work together in even deeper ways than we’ve been doing,” said Tracy Spannier.

She said Revelstoke’s proposal is to remove any barriers families may face accessing programs for young children in the community. “Which we already work on. but this would give us the ability to go a little bit deeper and to really support some of the programs that we’ve been able to do as a pilot project but we haven’t been able to maintain.”

Up to $52,000 is being made available to successful applicants, and a decision is expected to be made in mid-June.

“We’re not looking at re-inventing the work we’re already doing, we’re just looking at enriching what we’re doing and then going even deeper,” said Spannier.
