The District is pleased to offer programming at the Welcome Centre, located at Donna Gabriel Robins Elementary. The Welcome Centre provides interactive, informative sessions for families and their young children aged from birth to four years and will support families in celebrating their child’s development. It is a safe and welcoming space that is reflective of Indigenous culture and values, highlighting the First Nations principle that every child is a gift.

Currently, we have two programs running, and will continue to add new programs throughout the school year. These programs are available to all families in Langley at no cost.
