As part of our commitment to ensuring that all children have equal access to programs, we offer several supports and strategies that support children with special needs and their families.
Qualified staff provide support, make referrals and ensure that the children and the family get the assistance they need and support to be able to participate fully in all of our early years programs.
Below are the various programs and services we offer that support these families.
Play It Up – is a program for families with children between 16 – 26 months. This is an interactive program for families with children who may have a speech delay. You and your child will participate together in fun, easy experiences to promote your child’s language development and literacy skills.
