Community Outreach Programs
The Community Outreach Programs are divided by age groups into Infant/ Toddler Program and Preschooler Program. Each level of service is based on the needs of the specific age group. Families may start with services when their child is born or enter at a later age, depending on when developmental concerns are identified. The Progress Centre offers a continuum of services supporting families through the early years of their child’s development. The outreach services include home visits and Family Service Planning, consultation to child care settings, service coordination, and assistance with transitions.
Infant/Toddler Program ( for ages birth to 3 years)
The Infant/Toddler Program offers services mainly in the family and infant/child’s most natural environment, the home. Early Interventionists visit with families on a regular basis to help plan developmental activities for the child. If a little one is in child care, visits may also be made in this environment. Resources and information are shared and parents are connected with other services and supports in the community.
Preschooler Program ( for ages 3 years to school entry)
The Preschooler Program offers assistance to families whose children are preparing to enter a Child Care Centre or group program option. The program provides home visits to families and consultation to help preschool teachers include children of varying abilities in their program, and follows children through their preschool years and transition to school.
