Infant Development Program
Intervening early to improve development
We provide early intervention support to families with a child up to three years of age.
Sometimes children are slow to reach development milestone such as sitting unsupported, playing with toys, walking and talking. During the first three years of a child’s life, important learning takes place during play and everyday experiences. The role of parents/caregivers is that of the child’s first teacher. Our infant development consultant works with parents to develop a program of activities to encourage the development of physical, social, emotional, language and cognitive skills.
In addition to assessments, home visits and referrals, we run drop-ins where children can learn and socialize in an informal, fun group setting and parents can speak with our consultant. Come and play with us and learn about child development.
