The Government of Saskatchewan is supporting stronger families, including those living in vulnerable circumstances, through KidsFirst. In 2018-19, the Ministry of Education will provide $15.5 million to KidsFirst, which serves families in nearly 200 communities throughout the province, including Yorkton.
KidsFirst works to build on family strengths by providing parents with the knowledge and tools needed to support the healthy development of their children. Services are designed to build parent capacity, provide positive early learning experiences and connections to community.
One of the KidsFirst programs taking place within our school division is IMPACT, which is a
3-5 year old school readiness program that KidsFirst holds in as many communities as possible.
Below are the current dates planned for our IMPACTS. Typically they run 2 hours in length.
