The Building an Early Start Together (BEST) project gathers and promotes programs for families with children under the age of five. The goal is to help families build knowledge, skills, and resiliency. This, in turn, makes them better equipped to support their children in reaching their full potential.
Networking events are held for front line workers in organizations who support families with young children in six priority neighborhoods. These include:
- Lower West Side
- Glen Falls
- Waterloo Village
- Old North End
- Crescent Valley
- South End
We work closely with parents, schools, neighborhood and early childhood groups.
Launched by Saint John’s Early Childhood Development Coalition (ECDC) in 2012, BEST is now a project of the Family Resource Centre Saint John Inc.
