The Oliver Elementary School "Hub" is a concept about having a central resource and referral centre for family support services in counselling, parenting, health and early childhood development.  The Hub itself is a room at Oliver Elementary available for use by community service providers at no cost to them.  

After being open for only two years, the Hub is definitely helping to optimize the health and development of children and families in the Oliver community.  With it, families are able to access settlement workers and translators, mental health counselling, literacy services, financial assistance and much more.  The Hub provides a place for service providers to work from and for families to go to for the help they need.  As a school district we hope to partner in other communities to use our excess space to expand this concept and support all our families. 

Our coordinator, Melissa MacMeekin, provides mobile services as she moves around the community to our various early year service providers. She may be reached at 250-809-8476 or mmacmeekin@pdcrs.com.  Melissa would be pleased to help parents with scheduling, making connections and arranging other early childhood services.
