Child Friendly Survey - Businesses
DeltaKids conducted a survey of children and families in Delta. We wanted to know what was working for them, and what was not. We offer this data in the hope that it will assist you in your work with Delta children and families, and in the spirit of prompting further discussion, research, and collaboration. Together we can make Delta an even more family friendly community than it is already.
If you have questions about the survey or would like additional details please be in touch with Jason Hodgins
