Ottawa South

Best Start Planning Table

The Ottawa Best Start Planning Table is working toward building "a collaborative community engaged in ensuring that ALL children have the best and most equitable opportunity to achieve their full potential."

Our website provides parents and caregivers of children 0 to 6 years of age with the information on programs and events in Ottawa South, the Best Start Initiative as well as links to parenting resources.

Best Start is an Ontario government early learning and care strategy designed to help give our children the best possible start in life. The initiative aims to ensure children are prepared and eager to achieve success in school by the time they start Grade One.


The mandate of the Ottawa South Best Start Planning Table Steering Committee is to collaborate with our community partners to plan for and monitor implementation of Best Start in the twelve Ottawa South Planning Table neighbourhoods: Alta Vista; Blossom Park/Windsor Park; Clementine; Hawthorne; Hunt Club East and West; Ottawa South and South East; Riverview/Hawthorne; Riverside Park; Findlay Creek and Uplands/MFRC.
