Alderwood is moving in an unexpected direction!
Alderwood House School Inc (AHS) is excited to announce an agreement with Steveston Society of Children's Centres (SSOCC) for SSOCC to acquire Alderwood House School Inc.
In 2019, SSOCC will be opening the new Southlands location of Alderwood House School, owned by SSOCC.
During the 2019/2020 school year, the London road location of Alderwood will transfer ownership to SSOCC.
This transition in ownership from AHS to SSOCC is occurring in response to the impact that political policies and funding uncertainty has on child care operators in BC. In 2018, the AHS board of directors determined that selling Alderwood to a not-for-profit society would best ensure that Alderwood's unique, high-quality child care programs continue to thrive, regardless of changing political parties or agendas. As a result, SSOCC was created; purchasing AHS - London and working to expand the Alderwood family of programs throughout Richmond and Vancouver.
This transition retains the expertise and passion found in the Alderwood board of directors by hiring the AHS board as employees of SSOCC. The current Alderwood teaching team, curriculum and philosophy all continue under SSOCC. So it's a new umbrella organization, but otherwise - business as usual!
