SD46 Early Learning

Child looking in mirror

Early Years



We acknowledge with respect the unceded and traditional lands and waters of the Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw and the shíshálh Nation where we gather, learn, and collaborate with one another. 

Welcome to Early Years with School District 46 – Sunshine Coast.


Families with children aged birth to five have a number of programs that they can participate in free of charge. School District 46 – Sunshine Coast is dedicated to building a ‘continuum of support’ that fosters nurturing, responsive relationships between young children and their families, their communities and their schools so that children and families will thrive and develop an early and lifelong zest for learning.


To see our poster outlining the programs and services for ‘Pathways of Connecting & Belonging in the Early Years’ please click here.’


All School District 46 – Sunshine Coast Early Years Programs are offered to ALL families on the Sunshine Coast with children under school age at NO COST to families.
