Inventory of Community Programs and Services
Local Inventory
Each UEY community is responsible for developing an inventory of the local programs and services available to young children and their families.  

These include a range of services such as health clinics, schools, family resource centres, recreational facilities (including parks and pools), and child care facilities, and the programming specific to each.

Collecting information on the location of these resources allows the researcher to map them with other data.

The purpose of this exercise is to see how the availability and distribution of community resources is linked to young children’s developmental outcomes and whether there are gaps in provision of services and programs to support children and their families.

The UEY Selkirk-Interlake inventory includes information from 6 sectors:
1.      Education
2.      Health and Well-Being
3.      Sports and Leisure
