Our 2016 purchase of the Little Owl Academy, Little Owl Academy Ltd., was a pivotal step in the journey toward long-term plans for the development of a non-profit, The Little Owl Society, established in 2018. Operating 3 Little Owl Academy locations in the area, the demand for our early education programs continues. Growth of communities surrounding Kelowna, coupled with our reputation, garnered generous support from the BC Ministry of Children & Family Development. In spring of 2020, The Little Owl Society, DBA, Elowyn, was awarded a substantial grant to provide early education programs and family enrichment in Lake Country. Elowyn has acquired a fifteen-year lease to operate a newly renovated space on Pollard Road.
Across Canada, most households find both parents working and ours is no exception. We struggle to keep up with the fast-paced ecology our kids are growing up within and the affects it may be having on their emotional well-being. Our goals are to continue to offer best practices early education opportunities and to extend impactful existing family programs to underserved areas. We will do this by collaborating with organizations offering existing family programs in Kelowna while minimizing your accessibility and childminding concerns.
