Who is this Program for?

Children from 18 months to 12 years old who are demonstrating emotional and/or behavioural challenges while participating in child care programs.

Program Goals

  • To provide support and consultation to daycare, preschool and school-aged programs where children aged 18 months to 12 years, (primarily 18 months to 5 years), are demonstrating emotional and/or behavioural challenges.
  • To support children to continue to participate actively in settings within their community.
  • To work together with centre staff to increase our understanding of the program and/or a particular child/ren in order to develop strategies which foster the strength and capacity of the program as well as enhancing the children’s overall growth and emotional health.
  • To work in partnership with the Vancouver Aboriginal Child Development Program, as well as the Vancouver and Richmond Supported Child Development Programs, as well as other professionals supporting childcare programs.
  • To work together with parent/s and guardian/s and centre staff where child specific support is requested, making the intervention service more systemic and change for the child more sustainable.
