About Us

Saanich Neighbourhood Place (SNP) is a non-profit organization that delivers a wide range of programming for families, children and youth. As a registered charitable organization, we are funded by a combination of government contracts, community foundation funds, individual and corporate donors and sponsors, and earned revenues. 100% of any ‘profits’ are re-invested into our programs and services. Almost all of our programs and services are offered at no charge to participants, ensuring universal access and low barrier services remain available to support the community.

Your donation, large or small, helps us do things like purchase food, toys, small equipment, or diapers and formula to be distributed in our new parent programs. Sponsors and larger donations can be used to fund a program such as a 6-week cooking class, or music programs for our preschoolers, or purchase sleep cots for full-day programs.

Currently, Saanich Neighbourhood Place is in the midst of a major capital project, bringing 49 new childcare spaces and extra programs and services to the community. We are working to raise funds for this project, scheduled to open in mid 2021. This exciting project is a 7800 sq ft, purpose-built facility with three childcare rooms for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, as well as community rooms, a licensed kitchen, and office space for other services providers. A large natural play area will promote healthy outdoor exploration and learning for all the children in our care, and be available to the community as well.

We need the community to join us! Sponsorship and donations help us acquire needed supplies to serve children in our care – books for the library, cots and blankets for napping rooms, art materials or outdoor play equipment, food and equipment to provide meals and snacks for a month, or a year!

Or.. go even bigger! We have a bunch of rooms that need naming! The whole building needs a name! We’d love to discuss how you can leave a lasting legacy for the families and children of our community.

Please contact ed@snplace.org for more information on sponsorship and naming opportunities.
