Early Years Centre hosting grand opening as programs continue

Golden's Early Years Centre is hosting its grand opening celebration on Friday Oct. 17.

Golden’s Early Years Centre is hosting its grand opening celebration on Friday Oct. 17.

The new space, one of 12 test sites for the Province, is a hub for young children, their families and caregivers. It is the spot for multiple programs, such as Baby Talk, or Mother Goose (a pre-literacy program that focuses on songs and nursery rhymes).

There is also unscheduled drop-in time where parents can have a cup of coffee while their children play with toys or meet new friends.

The space, located on 9th Avenue North in downtown Golden (next to the Youth Centre), is funded by the British Columbia Provincial Office for the Early Years.

The downtown location has allowed early years programs to reach families they may not have otherwise, as they are visible to passersby in the downtown core.

Everyone is welcome to go check out the new centre between noon and 2 p.m. on Friday Oct. 17.

There will be food, courtesy of Whitetooth Bistro, and refreshments available.
