About Us


In 1994, Kids First Association was developed from a dream of a low-income women's group, Taking Control Making Changes. These women envisioned a place where they and their children could come together in a safe non-judgemental atmosphere to support and learn from each other. Today Kids First Association has grown to offer programs and services to families with children from 0-6 in Pictou, Antigonish and Guysborough Counties. With over 1000 families participating in our programs Kids First plays an significant role in service delivery to families and children in our communities.
