The Steveston Society of Children’s Centres (SSOCC) was founded in 2018. We have a commitment to creating and delivering high-quality child care programs that are nature-based and focus on social-emotional learning.
Our board of directors is made up of child care experts and parents from across the province:
2022/23 Board of Directors:
Our programs are parent participation programs. That means that parents have opportunities to volunteer in their child’s classroom, participate on sub-committees that contribute to the functioning of the classrooms and/or the society, or sit on the Executive Parent Advisory Board, where they can fulfill a more advisory role and guide the overall administration of our programs.
SSOCC’s strategic plan is viewable here.
