OUR SERVICES

Families play a key role in every child’s development. From birth to three years old, a child develops at a rapid pace. Physical, social, emotional, behavioural, communication and intellectual development depend in part on experiences provided by the infant’s family.

PLAYGROUPS

Our weekly drop-in playgroup is available to all families referred to the Infant Development Program. The group offers families the benefit of meeting other families with similar experiences in a relaxed setting. There are Infant Development Consultants available at the group to answer questions about development. Guest speakers are also invited on occassion

PLANNING WITH YOU

Home Visits are a key part and the core around which support and services to the family are built. Once you are referred to our Infant Development Program, a consultant will visit you in your home. Together, you will plan activities that best meet your child’s and your family’s needs. If your child has a disability (a special need), up-to-date information will be made available to you.

We are hiring!
