Make a difference in a family’s life by developing your skills in Early Learning.
The Surrey School District (SD36), the SFU Surrey–TD Community Engagement Centre, and Blackwood Partners are collaborating to run a drop-in Early Learning for Families (ELF) program at the Central City Shopping Centre. ELF brings early learning initiatives out of the schools and into the community by offering pop-up programming at the Central City Shopping Centre in Surrey. The program links families and their children to play-based learning, school and community resources, and support networks. In addition, the ELF Program helps to eliminate barriers that families face when first entering the education system. Some of the fundamental characteristics of the program are:
- Child-centered, play-based learning;
- Parent engagement;
- A focus on early literacy and numeracy;
- Links and referrals to the SD36 and community resources.
Activities will include coloring, drawing, reading, toys and much more!
