We are a diverse group of people and organizations who share a common vision and collective responsibility for the health & wellbeing of all young chilldren in the Greater Victoria area.
The PLAY coalition has thoughtful priorities, and a number of important initiatives going on. We make things happen through work of our task groups, support local community early years groups, all tied together by the Leadership Committee.
We can offer you a place for partnership, local information and research about young children in the Greater Victoria region and a group rich with professional expertise in the early years. We look for opportunitites to increase the profile and supports for young children and their families, and welcome your involvement and ideas. Being part of PLAY means your community planning and support can be supported by...

- Support of many committed people in a variety of sectors, like childcare, health, libraries, recreation, schools, child welfare, geographers, family support programs, and many more.
