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.
Prevention-focused, research-informed and community-based, Success By 6® envisions a community where all children are valued, respected, nurtured, loved and given the opportunity to develop to their full potential as creative, caring, competent and responsible adults.
In British Columbia, Success By 6® is a unique partnership among the Credit Unions of BC, United Ways, the BC Government through the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and our communities.
Since April 2003, the Early Childhood Development Provincial Partnership (ECDPP) has successfully facilitated the development of Success By 6® initiatives that reach close to 250 communities across the province, bringing together hundreds of key leaders from all sectors (business, labor, health, education, social services, Aboriginal communities, etc), and raising millions of dollars worth of contributions, including cash and in-kind donations. Funds raised in local communities will stay in the community to support identified early childhood development priorities.
In collaboration with local communities and early childhood development professionals, the ECDPP continues to build “child-friendly” communities and support the healthy growth and development of young children and their families.
