Infant Development Program
If you are concerned about your child’s development, the Infant Development Program can help.
The Infant Development Program serves children from birth to five years old, who are at risk for, or who already have a delay in development. The Infant Development Program is a home visiting program, but visits can also be scheduled for out in the community or in our office playroom. The Early Years Navigator will work with parents to enhance the overall development of their child with an emphasis on identifying individual goals.
- All programs are “family centered.” This means that you, the parent, decide on what kind of support you need.
- Home, community, or office visits where we will encourage progress, develop new activities, and support parents
- Developmental assessments, developmental screeners, and written reports
- Playgroup with parent participation
- Support during occupational and physiotherapy consultation meetings
- Service coordination
Early Years Program
“A child’s play is a child’s work.”
The Early Years Program is a family-centered program that aims to increase the ability of parents or caregivers to support the health and development of their children from birth to eight years of age.
The program provides a range of supports, such as home visits, child care center visits, mentorship, playgroups, information on child behaviors and parenting strategies, information on infant and child developmental milestones, play opportunities and activities, food security, accessing other resources and services in our society and community, and fun!
The program focuses on play! Children learn through play, and strong parent-child relationships are built and strengthened through play. The Early Years Program can help families learn new ways to play and interact with their children to support healthy development and strong relationships.
