About Us

Saanich Neighbourhood Place (SNP) is a non-profit organization that delivers a wide range of programming aimed at helping families access resources and supports they feel they need, in a barrier free environment and within their own neighbourhoods.

Programs range from parenting classes to cooking classes, drop in support sessions, prenatal discussion groups, postpartum groups, drop in playgroups and kinder-gym. SNP also has a dedicated Family Development team, available for those who may wish for more specific, private support options.

Full o’Beans Preschool, operating since September 2013, is one of the programs for families and children at SNP. Our mission is to provide high quality, accessible early learning and care experiences in a safe, nurturing environment for children ages 3 to 5 years old.

In February 2016, SNP was awarded the designation of “Early Years Centre” by the Provincial Office for the Early Years, joining a network of 46 other Early Years Centres in British Columbia. Early Years Centres offer families with young children under the age of six with a range of early years supports, information, and programs in a more streamlined and holistic way. The Victoria Early Years Centre worked to collaborate across sectors to improve and coordinate early years service delivery within the geographical region of the Greater Victoria School District (SD61). At the end of March 2019, the Provincial Office for the Early Years removed the “Early Years Centre” designation from centres across BC, including Saanich Neighbourhood Place. SNP continues to provide the same services and programs as it did under the designation.
