Healthy Kids Bright Futures

Healthy Kids Bright Futures focuses on activities and education to increase young children’s positive development and school readiness.   With a coordinated community effort and Healthy Kids’ broad network of partners, children will be more ready to meet age-appropriate skills and behaviour expectations through participation in activities related to each of five domains; physical health and well-being, social competency, emotional maturity, language and cognitive development and communication skills and general knowledge.

Healthy Kids All Kids

The Healthy Kids All Kids initiative will support a welcoming environment for all children to participate in local activities.  It will provide training and tools to local sport, art, culture and recreation organizations to support them in welcoming and including children from a range of backgrounds and experience.  Community events held throughout the next two years will highlight opportunities for all children to participate in programs and demonstrate less traditional activities.
