For parents of children three to six
Would it help to talk to a professional because you are concerned your child may be developing a problem?
One contact may be all you need to give you the information to ease your mind or point you in the right direction. The weekly Parent Information Cafe offered by our Preschool Support Services is there to hear your concerns, answer your questions and provide the information you need.
Are you looking for good information about parenting kids from three to six years old ?
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 need quality child care for your little one and don’t know where 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 your child care centre expressed concern that your child may be showing signs of social or emotional problems?
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.
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.
Are you concerned that your three to six year old is overly active, worries too much, is aggressive or doesn’t listen to you?
The Zero2Six Program offers a service that sends a caring, knowledgeable professional to your home to get to know you and your child, hear your concerns, work with you to create a plan to address the concerns and give you the tools you need.
Are you concerned that your three to six year old doesn’t get along with other children? Are you looking for something to help your child develop or improve social skills?
The Zero2Six Program offers a group experience for children to help them learn how to get along with others. At the same time, parents meet together with a Zero2Six worker to discuss parenting and understand what their children are learning in the group, so they can practice new skills at home.
