"Children's home environments in particular the extent to which they acquire literacy skills and habits from the adults raising them are the key to early childhood literacy."

The Dave Hancock Charity Golf Classic
Since its inception six years ago, the golf classic has raised more than half a million dollars for Success by 6®, a community project managed by United Way of the Alberta Capital Region.
Success By 6® is a prevention initiative to ensure all preschool children in Edmonton have the necessary development and support for a lifetime of growth and achievement.
The Centre is delighted to be a recipient of the funds raised from the 2006 Dave Hancock Charity Golf Classic. At a reception held for volunteers at Government House on February 13, Maureen Sanders, Executive Director of the Centre accepted a cheque from The Honourable Dave Hancock and indicated this donation will be directed to our Edmonton Classroom on Wheels (C.O.W.) Bus program.
