Resources support healthy child development
LEAP BC is a set of resources that promotes healthy child development that was created by 2010 Legacies Now, with support from the Province of British Columbia. LEAP BC integrates Literacy, Education, Activity and Play, and is designed for families, caregivers and early learning practitioners who engage with young children. In June 2011, 2010 Legacies Now transferred management of LEAP BC to Decoda Literacy Solutions where it will continue to benefit communities as a legacy of the 2010 Winter Games.
