The Family Program

Get in Touch

  • Primarily funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD)
  • Free of charge



Who is this Program for?

Children from 3 to 5 years of age and their families

Program Goals

  • To offer the child and family a range of supports, including a play-based preschool program that focuses on the emotional, social, cognitive and physical growth of the child.
  • To build on the family’s strengths and the child/parent relationship and attachment, as well as supporting the overall growth of the child. Parent/caregiver involvement is essential and an integral part of this family program.
  • To work in partnership with the child’s family, caregivers and other professionals, developing goals and a plan based on strengths and needs.
  • To support children, where possible to continue to participate actively in settings within their community while participating in the preschool component of the Family Program (e.g. also attending daycare, preschool or transitioning to school).
