"My son, Diyako is really enjoying the program now. He comes home each day and trying to sing the songs he is learning at preschool. He is very happy with his teacher Kasha and Brigit is wonderful too. They are very respectful and trying to get the kids attention. I also appreciate the program and happy that Diyako is enjoying his preschool."
"We couldn’t ask for anything more for our child. It is a positive, fun and safe place to be outside of school for the kids. The activities are great, our child loves the snacks, hours are great and wonderful planned activities on professional days, Christmas break and Spring break. We are so pleased!"
"I have two sons whom have never been to daycare, but when they started preschool, they fit in very well. I think this is because I have often taken them to family drop in program in the past. The program included free play, crafts and circle time. It helped my sons develop social skills, promote school readiness and encouraged me to engage in their learning. Also I was given the chance to make new friends, share ideas and acquire parenting resources. I appreciated the program manager Ms Maheen advised me take the ECE course; after I graduated I had the chance to work for family drop in program."
"I first became involved with BNH when I heeded some volunteer hours for my study at Vancouver Community College four years ago. I had not heard of them before, but volunteering with BNH has totally changed my life. Fantastic and absolutely new experience for me! Back to my country of origin (Russia) we have never had such a thing as volunteering. My first volunteer position at BNH was an ESL Teacher Assistant, which I have been doing for over two years. And I found it incredibly rewarding because English is my second language. Now as a volunteer, I am taking part in Small Grant Program, Community Talk and other sorts of activities. I enjoy doing that for my neighbourhood. And I am pleased to say that people there are amazing! Joining the team at BNH is one of the best things I've ever done - Thanks for having me!"
"Our daughter has been attending Lochdale Before and After School Care from Kindergarten to Grade 3. Each morning, she runs from my parked car to the program to take part in the activities and to catch up with her friends. The staff are always welcoming, knowledgeable and prepared, with lots of interesting activities during the morning and afternoon. From a parental perspective, we know our daughter is safe and engaged. We recommend this program to other parents looking for a quality care environment for their children.”
"The program has been great and very helpful for the development of my son's social skill, I really appreciate your hard work and extra attention to Wallace."
