Success by 6 is a North Cariboo program delivered by United Way in Prince George. It is an Early Child Development provincial program dedicated to ensuring children ages 0 to 6 have access to programs that are critical in supporting their healthy growth and development. Each community has a community table which broadens this partnership to include ECD service providers and reps from the broader community.  Quesnel’s local table recently requested and received $12,000 in funding from Success by 6 to establish an indoor playground in Quesnel which provides an opportunity for children in this age group to engage in physical activity during inclement weather. Quesnel Leisure Services agreed to provide space for the equipment at both the Twin Arenas and the Recreation Centre, as well as providing maintenance and insurance coverage. Front to back: Bob Moore, United Way Success by 6 regional coordinator; Mayor Mary Sjstrom, Success by 6 table members Sandy Meidlinger, Jocelyn Stuart and Rebecca Beuschel, Arts and Recreation Centre manager Diane Rogers, Coun. Laurey-Ann Roodenburg and CRD director Heloise Dixon-Warren.
