Nov. 20 is National Child Day, a day to celebrate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

National Child Day was proclaimed by the Canadian government in 1993. It is a day to marvel on the uniqueness of each child and to celebrate our  community of children.

The Comox Valley celebrates National Child Day with a guest reader program. Funding to make this program available  is provided by Early Childhood Educators of BC (Comox Valley) and Success by 6.

Childcare centres, preschools and family childcare homes receive a book that celebrates a childhood experience. Each participating facility invites a member of the community to come and read the book.

Guest readers in the past have been; parents and grandparents, local school principals, kindergarten teachers, firefights, police officers.

The Early Childhood Educators of BC is the professional organization that promotes professionalism in early care and learning, and participates in early years activities and partnerships in the Comox Valley. Early Childhood Educators of British Columbia (ECEBC) has been advancing early childhood education and care since 1969.

It educates early childhood educators and the broader community about the importance of early childhood education and care. It provides professional development opportunities to early childhood educators across the province.

Success by 6 is an early childhood development initiative dedicated to providing all children with a good start in life. It helps to ensure that children ages 0 to 6 develop the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical skills they need as they enter school.

Success By 6 builds and enhances community through engaging citizens in early childhood development, and funding programs that strengthen services for young children and their families. Funded programs include literacy, nutrition, children’s play, parenting and family skills development.
