Gold Leadership Award for Kensington Prairie Community Centre
Kensington Prairie Community Centre has received a Gold Award in the municipal category of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada/Deloitte Public Leadership Awards. Kensington Prairie is run on a set of community partnerships and principles to improve access and services in our community. Programming is noteworthy because the City of Surrey works with nine partners to deliver services at the facility. This integrated service delivery model allows KP to provide a wide-range of early childhood development programming and resources, including child care, education and health. Alexandra Children's Centre is one of these partners, collaborating with the city to provide childcare services at the KP facility. This collaborative community model maximizes limited resources, limits duplication and builds strong relationships.
