The Early Years Play Tour is a community initiative organized by the Coalition for Children and Families of the Southern Gulf Islands. This event is an opportunity for families to learn about different local, licensed child care centres, and programs for families on Salt Spring Island. Families pick up a map to the centres on the tour in the morning, sampling different programs to get a sense of what best fits their familys needs. They will also receive a Family Resource Guide that contains information about the various early childhood centres in the community.
