Outcomes Report (2014-15)

OCS Annual Outcomes Report 2014-2015

supported multiple clients throughout the year and continued to support 23 clients at the end of the 4 th quarter.

Growing Together has continued a much appreciated relationship with Telus. This year, Telus provided GTD with a $5,000.00 donation as well as a laptop computer. This has been enormously helpful with the transition from paper to electronic files, because staff can easily access iPads and computers for quick notations. Telus also supported our clients with gifts throughout the year (Easter, Christmas and Grad), and provided inspirational talks in the classroom. Outcomes in Growing Together Daycare this Year While GTD supports moms and young children in many ways, one of the primary outcomes we seek to achieve is ensuring babies meet developmental milestones, and that moms are supported in understanding these milestones and what they mean. GTD maintains a close relationship to the Infant Development Program, so that when developmental milestones are not being reached services are immediately accessed. Quality Improvements in Growing Together Daycare this Year • The Carpentry class at Guildford Park built and delivered a new playhouse for the children of Growing Together. • Our Program Manager in partnership with BC Council for Families and Dr. Lapointe hosted our first annual Young Mom’s Meet up in May 2014. We invited participants from Growing Together past and present as well as others from similar programs. • Surrey Infant Development Program visits GTD once per month to observe any children we have concerns about. This has been a very positive partnership. • The housing program continues to support young moms with 13 housing subsidies. • The Surrey School District provided a complete interior repainting of the Growing Together Daycare centre over the Spring Break. • GTD provides a Teeth Varnishing program, holds Mother Goose literacy programs and teaches infant massage for new moms. • Our program manager continues the partnership to refer many of our upcoming grads to the Princess Project and as well accompanied them to the Princess Project. 5. Family Resource Programs (FRP) Family Resource Programs continue to grow and develop with the huge increase in the Surrey population. Surrey has the largest 0-6 population in BC, and continues to grow with 500 births/month. This is evidenced by the number of times we must close the doors on waiting Target Results ASQ Scores 80% of children score in target area 90% 68% Monthly attendance 50% attendance Monthly enrolment 22 children per month 23.83
