Working with day-cares, preschools, family day-cares and out-of-school care programs, we provide consultation services and extra staffing assistance to ensure inclusive practices for children who have a demonstrated need for extra support. We also provide help and information to parents so they can access thekind of care that best suits their child’s needs.

SCD provides support for child care staff, families and their children up to 12 years of age. Youth, 13 to 19 years of age are considered on an individual basis.
