Infants & Children (birth to 6 years)

Infants & Children (birth to 6 years)

All of our Early Years programs are "family- centred". This means that you, the parent, decide on what kind of support you need.  We offer Early Years services through our Infant & Child Development Program and our 0-6 Mental Health Program.  A doctor's referral  is not required, and there are no fees for services.

Infant and Child Development Program

We provide a range of services and supports to parents/guardians and their infants/children up to 5 years of age who are at risk for or are experiencing developmental delays.

This program may be suitable for you and your child if:

  • You notice that your child needs more support to learn how to hold up his/her head, roll over, sit, talk, or interact with others compared to other same-age children
  • You feel like you are not connected to your baby or toddler
  • Your child experienced health problems prenatally, at birth, or as a very young infant
  • Your child has a genetic or medical condition

Through home and community visits, our Team will work with you to ensure that you and your child receive the most suitable supports.

If you need more information or would like to book an appointment, please contact us at 519-337-3701.

Early Years Mental Health Services

We provide a range of support services to parents/guardians and their children from infancy to 6 years of age who are facing social, emotional, and/or behavioural difficulties.

Our services may be a good fit for your family if your child:

  • Engages in hard to manage behaviour at home or in the community
  • Is experiencing relationship difficulties with family and friends
  • Has ongoing struggles with daily routines (such as sleeping, eating) that are not due to medical illness
  • Has experienced a difficult or stressful life event
  • Appears to be sad, anxious, or clingy

Our Team will work with you to match our services with the needs and strengths of your child and family.

If you need more information or would like to book an appointment, please contact us at 519-337-3701.
