Consultants are available to support children in your licensed child care program, home child care program and EarlyON Child and Family Centres. We know that parents are the primary decision makers in their child's life and we foster collaborative partnerships with families.
Resource consultant and behaviour consultants recognize each child's unique characteristics. They provide recommendations and strategies to adapt the early learning environment and promote inclusion and opportunities for developmental growth. It's recognized that child development milestones and behaviours vary and these differences are acknowledged and respected.
