The Child Care Consultation Program serves children, their families, child care professionals and home care providers in Scarborough by promoting the optimal role of child care professionals in the identification and management of children with special needs. This program is funded by the City of Toronto Children’s Services Division under its “Every Child Belongs” program. Our agency provides service to a designated group of child care centres. We offer individual and program consultation as well as workshops and presentations to child care centres, home child care programs and families. The objective is to provide individual and specialized support to enable children with special needs to be fully included in quality child care programs. Additionally, we collaborate with child care programs to continually improve the overall quality of care for all children.
We also provide specialized service support, behaviour and psychological consultation to special needs resource professionals, child care centres and home child care programs in our area.
