The Supported Child Development (SCD) Program is a community-based program, funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development. We assist families of children who require additional support to access inclusive child care programs. Working with child cares, preschools, and school age care programs, we provide consultation services and extra staffing assistance to ensure inclusive practices for children who need extra support. Our program is part of The BC Centre for Ability who provides services that aim to enhance the quality of life for children, youth and adults with developmental delays and disabilities.
This workshop will focus on:
- What is SCD? What is our role within your program?
- What is the BC Centre for Ability and what services do they offer for families?
- What other resources are out there while we might be waiting for services? Who can we refer families to?
- What is inclusion? How can we make sure each child is fully included in our childcare?
* This workshop will include one fun activity & a free giveaway
The YMCA CCRR will arrange for the pick up of workshop Activity Materials before the workshop from one of our locations.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
