Semiahmoo Family Place (SFP) was made for, and by, parents and families just like yours. It started out as the exchange of keys between families looking for a space to connect and play, with shared toys and resources.  These families came together to create the Semiahmoo Family Place Association, incorporated as a BC Society on June 12, 1991.  Just a few months later, SFP received it’s charitable organization status (133974949 RR0001) on October 1, 1991.

Since then, SFP has grown and evolved, with the support and involvement of the community it serves. Moving from location to location, it settled at the heritage site of the Kensington Prairie Community Centre (32 Avenue and 168 Street, Surrey) in 2006.

Our mission: to connect families through play.

Our goals:

• To provide a comfortable, safe, stimulating place where all children can come together at no or low cost; to learn and to build social skills through age appropriate activities without segregating children by age or separating child from caregiver or siblings
• To reduce isolation of caregivers and children
• To provide learning and social experiences for children
• To provide equipment and supplies not accessible to most families individually
• To integrate all families regardless of income, race or social structure
