Infant Development Program

Questions or concerns about your child’s 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.

The Infant Development Program (IDP) is meeting in Squamish at Brackendale Elementary School on Fridays from 10 to 11:30am. Registration is required.

Please contact Annie McDonald, annie.mcdonald@sscs.ca or Laurie Low, laurie.low@sscs.ca to inquire or if you have any questions regarding infant development.

IDP is also running a group in Whistler at our Spring Creek Office on Mondays from 10 to 11:30pm, and in Pemberton at our Program House on Thursdays from 10 to 11:30am. Contact gabi.moeller@sscs.ca for more details.

This program is funded by the Province of British Columbia.
