Success by 6 Peel (SB6) is a pillar of the Peel Children and Youth Initiative and a region-wide collaborative dedicated to strengthening services for young children and their families. SB6 relies on research and family engagement to inform local early years systems plans that provide opportunities for young children to develop their emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills.

As a committee of PCYI and as Peel’s integrated planning table for children 0-6, SB6 is funded by the Ministry of Education to:

  • Work collaboratively with the Region of Peel, along with the wider community to develop and implement local early years and child care plans
  •  Inform early years service system planning, practices, recommendations and decisions related to the local early years systems plans
  • Facilitate collaborative program planning, foster partnerships and enhance public awareness related to early years programs and initiatives
  • Identify evolving community needs, service gaps, and service duplication by regularly collecting insights from parents and caregivers
  • Support local decision-making to enrich programs, facilitate smooth transitions and enhance integration between early years services, schools and specialized community services

Values

We are committed to our values of equality, collaboration, diversity, informed decision-making, trust, respect and collective impact.

Membership
