Vision and Mission Statement


Treasure Island’s vision is “for a strong, vibrant community where all individuals, parents, families, educators, staff and groups, not just feel they belong and matter, but have a voice in the service and the changes that matter within our service.”

Treasure Island’s mission is “to provide high quality environments that engage and nurture learning through play, to become environmentally sustainable, and to bring daily awareness to all who use the service on not just the benefits of sustainability but of the need. Another focal point is to provide high quality policy development that takes into its heart not only the community that use the service, but the larger community, high quality evolving program delivery and community engagement within an over-arching social inclusion framework.
