Early Years Healthy Start Fairs
All parents and caregivers have questions when it comes to the health and wellness of their children, but with so much information available it can be overwhelming to find the answers you need.
To help point you in the right direction, the Greater Nanaimo Early Years Partnership (GNEYP) is proud to host Early Years Healthy Start Fairs. These fairs are a one-stop-shop for families with children age 0-6. At our fairs you can meet and connect with local agencies and organizations to learn more about how they can support you in raising your children.
While you are learning and having your questions answered by our community partners, your child can participate in a variety of fun activities and games, that will introduce them to healthy habits in a positive space.
These FREE drop in events feature games, snacks, giveaways, activities and stories, along with opportunities for vision screening and immunizations. You can also find a wealth of information on family resources, community programs and much more.
