Family Resource Fair comes to the Comox Valley

Friday, May 11, at Glacier View Secondary Centre

Families and caregivers of newborns to toddlers now have a unique fair designed just to learn about all the resources the Comox Valley has to offer, and more.

It’s the Family Resource Fair, a free event and the first of its kind, taking place Friday 11 May at Glacier View Secondary Centre (241 Beecher Dr. Courtenay) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

School District 71 (SD71) in partnership with Valley Child and Success By 6 organized and will host the event that is geared toward early learning in order to showcase the unique and diverse resources here in the Valley that families and caregivers can access.

A similar event was held in the community 12 years ago but had not continued regularly. With the growing population in the Valley, which is seeing an increase in young families the partnering groups felt it was necessary and advantageous to showcase what early learning is all about in the Valley today.
