Everyone is welcome to attend and learn more about the Centre’s story as well as programs and services available for families with infants and children. Enjoy local catering, check out the face painting booth, enter the door prize draw, and meet with Centre staff and local and provincial representatives.

As well, browse through the information booths set up by Interior Health, Success by Six, Okanagan Regional Library, the Sncəwips Heritage Museum, Sənsisyusten House of Learning, Westbank Child Development Centre, and the WFN Health and Wellness department.

The Early Years Centre, which formerly hosted programs and services at the WFN Health & Wellness Building, is now located on the top floor of the new WFN Youth Centre.
