My Child Has Been Referred

Supported Child Development is based on the belief that all children have the right to be actively included in the community.

The Supported Child Development Program works with families and community care providers to ensure that the exceptional needs of all children can be met in their neighbourhood child care settings. This may involve observation of a child, general or child specific information, program ideas and training. In some situations, following the completion of a Support Guide, additional staff support may be provided.

When A Request for Support is received...

What if My Child Is On the Wait List?

Every August, the Supported Child Development Department reviews the need for support for the upcoming year. The wait list is also reviewed at that time. If your child requires support, the consultant who has been working with your family will ask you to indicate what days per week and how many hours per day your child will be attending a program; however, this does not necessarily mean that your child will indeed receive support  We must look at all of our options in order to ensure that we are able to support as many children as possible from the waitlist each September. This also means that as all of our staff are assigned to support children in September, we are very rarely able to support children at other times of the year.

“It is important to remember as we forge ahead in our caring and commitment to children and young people, that this is not a journey we need travel alone.”
