Welcome message from site

Hello Students! I normally share a student with the Comox Vallley Child Development Association. With this arrangement you are with me half time. Plus you are able to see children from birth all the way through to adulthood. Because we serve our population in any of the public schools in the Comox Valley, I have put a picture of the Comox Glacier as our facility picture.
