Storytime in the Park: Seabird Island -
Seabird Island is a progressive First Nations community located in Agassiz, BC. Practicing a cultural, holistic approach to service delivery, Seabird Island supports parents as their children’s first teachers and encourages children to reach their full potential. Through a range of services, some beginning before birth and lasting throughout life, we empower our members to be healthy, independent and culturally strong.
We are a proud partner of Story Time in the Park which supports literacy and fosters a love of reading. A unique part of Story Time in the Park at Seabird Island is the inclusion of our B.E.A.R. Bus program which helps children 0 – 6, as well as expecting parents, access early learning programs and connects families to services in their local area. B.E.A.R. Bus is one of Seabird’s 15 Early Childhood Development programs, each of which are designed to meet the individual needs of the children and families we serve.

Keep our parks green and lovely. Put garbage in the bins. Also, we ask you bring your own cups, dishes and wipes that you can take home and reuse. Have a Story Time in the Park bag ready to go every week, and you won't miss a moment of the fun!
