Best You!

The City of Brampton (COB) Recreation Division delivers the BEST You! (Build, Explore, Support, Talk) to promote and support the health and well-being of school-age children in Peel. The BEST You! Program includes three 45-minute modules that are focused on the physical, social and emotional development of children in grades 1 through 8 at the Peel District School Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board. Through interactive and engaging games, activities, and discussion children and youth work together to problem solve and build healthy and positive relationships with themselves and others. ​

FCHI was introduced to COB staff during early community engagement activities. Following a focus group COB invited FCHI to support the co-design and program development. FCHI staff also supported in co-facilitating the BEST You! Staff training. Future work will include evaluating current programming and expanding curriculum development to include high school students, school staff and caregivers, parents and families.
