Lillooet Children First Initiative

Children First initiatives are funded by MCFD to support communities to identify and develop an integrated and comprehensive model of Early Childhood Development service delivery for children birth to 6 years and their families.  Children First is not a program that delivers services directly to children and families.


Children First initiatives are community-driven.  Each initiative will develop in a way that is unique to its community.  Key to the development of the initiative is community ownership , and there are some activities that are core to the process and that are undertaken in each initiative.


The objectives of the Children First initiatives are:

  • Increase community capacity,
  • Increase service delivery effectiveness,
  • Engaging "hard to reach" families,
  • Increased opportunities for early identification and screening, and
  • Improving outcomes for children and families
