February 26, 2008 - Following in the footsteps of sister schools, (Pius XII and St. Francis), St. Charles Catholic school launched the start of its BestStart Hub today in Chelmsford.

Children and families from the school community joined child care agencies and Sudbury Catholic Schools’ Director of Education, Catherine McCullough, Senior Administration and Board staff in helping to celebrate the grand opening. The Best Start Program referred to as “Hubs” is a one-stop centre for families, bringing together kindergarten, childcare, parent-child programs, parenting supports and a wide range of specialized services. The Hubs are located in schools or other locations that are closely linked to schools. Best Start is an initiative of the Provincial Government but is directed at the local level by a Best Start Network which is made up of representatives from the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, the City of Greater Sudbury, all four school boards, and the child care, family support, health and specialized children’s services sectors.

The Best Start Hubs incorporate services for families such as kindergarten, childcare and family supports, tot playgrounds, workshops for parents, dad and baby night as well as access to other services. Over time, more services such as selected Preschool Speech and Language and Health Services will be offered in the hubs. The goal of the Best Start Hub is to integrate all of these services so that they are all working together and providing families with seamless services.
