Summary

The evaluation of the Success By 6 partnership in British Columbia was intended to assess and improve capacity to develop locally-supported early childhood development services in BC communities, and to improve the impacts of the SB6-BC program on BC families. The evaluation also sought to uncover and communicate the successes of the SB6-BC partnership model, whereby the Provincial Government, the Credit Unions of British Columbia and the United Way jointly run and fund local initiatives. The evaluation united partners around four ultimate goals for early childhood development. It also demonstrated that the capacity of BC communities to provide locally-navigated early childhood development programs is growing throughout the province, and that families and communities are reporting improvements in their early childhood development programs.
