For parents of children under two
Are you worried about your little one? Or not sure whether you should be worried?
Sometimes, as parents, we aren’t quite sure whether we should worry about how our little one is doing. The resource consultants in our Preschool Support Services are very knowledgeable about child development and appreciate the uniqueness of each little one. The program provides a weekly Parent Information Cafe where parents can drop in and ask the questions that are on their minds.
Are you looking for good information about little ones and parenting them?
Preschool Support Services provides information sessions and workshops, as well as a Resource Library, so that you can get the information you need in a way that works for you.
Do you have concerns that your infant or toddler is not eating or sleeping or playing as well as you think he or she should?
The Zero2Six Program offers a service that sends a caring, knowledgeable professional to your home to get to know you and your little one, hear your concerns, work with you to create a plan to address the concerns and give you the tools you need.
Do you have concerns about the overall development of your little one?
The first step is to talk to a professional who knows your child, for example your doctor or someone at your child care centre. If she/he agrees there is a reason for concern, then contact the Special Needs Access Point (SNAP). SNAP will link you to the resource, support or service in our community that will be most helpful to your child and you.
Do you need quality child care for your little one and don’t know where to begin to look?
Contact Child Care Connection; it is there to help you understand how to find safe, quality child care. As well, Child Care Connection has a list of every licensed child care program in Waterloo Region.
Has the staff at your little one’s child care centre expressed concerns about your child’s behaviour?
The consultants in our Preschool Support Services are there to help. A consultant will go to the centre, observe your child, and offer suggestions to both the centre staff and to you to assist your child.
