Our Impact

 

Childhood Connections Okanagan Family and Childcare Society (formerly Kelowna Child Care Society) is a non-profit society that has been providing services in the Central Okanagan since 1977.  Throughout this time, the society has seen many changes in the community. Initially, the focus of the Society was primarily around child care, and although this is still a key service, the Society has evolved and provides many services that support the healthy growth of children in our community.
