Children’s programming is a very large part of what we do at South Vancouver Neighbourhood House. Not only do we have programs that are on-going throughout the year such as our out-of-school care and Poppins Preschool (September – June), but we operate several shorter term programs at various times during the year and a summer daycamp as well. For specific information on our children’s programming see the information below.
If you are interested in other programs for children and youth please see our "Youth" page.
