Building an Early Start Together (BEST)

The Building an Early Start Together (BEST) project gathered and promoted programs for families with children under the age of five. The goal was to help families build knowledge, skills, and resiliency. This, in turn, made them better equipped to support their children in reaching their full potential.

Networking events were held for front line workers in organizations who supported families with young children in six priority neighborhoods. They included:

  • Lower West Side
  • Glen Falls
  • Waterloo Village
  • Old North End
  • Crescent Valley
  • South End

We worked closely with parents, schools, neighborhood and early childhood groups.

Launched by Saint John’s Early Childhood Development Coalition (ECDC) in 2012, BEST became a project of the Family Resource Centre Saint John Inc.
