Early Childhood Development (ECD)

The Salmon Arm Early Childhood Development (ECD) Committee is a coalition including service providers, parents, and businesses interested in creating the best environment possible for the children of our community. If you share their purpose, please join the committee

MISSION:  The committee works together with families and community partners to promote healthy Early Childhood Development.


The Committee works with our community’s businesses, government, service providers, advocates, educators and families to ensure that our young children are born healthy, and remain healthy, nurtured and ready to flourish as lifelong learners.

They are funded by Success by Six, Children First and Building Blocks. The committee is always looking for local sponsors or for individuals and companies to make donations. A charitable tax receipt can be issued for your contribution.
