With an active Healthy Start/Départ Santé (HSDS) team, our project is covering a lot of ground and we thought we’d share where we have been since the beginning of our third year of implementation. Since August 2015, HSDS has added 37 new centres and prek’s in 27 new communities. To date Healthy Start is implemented in the North West, far North from Buffalo Narrows to Beauval and Pinehouse. Many on-reserve and off-reserve centres including Head Start programs are now part of the project.
In the next couple of weeks, the team is heading to La Ronge, Yorkton, Humbolt and Christopher Lake for trainings in childcare centres and prekindergartens.
