Supported Child Development - Ridge Meadows

All families should have the same choices for childcare within their communities, no matter what their child’s needs are.
Supported Child Development is a community-based program that is grounded in the belief that inclusion and family centred practice are important in helping children who require any level of support to actively participate in a full range of child care settings.
Inclusion as an overall philosophy supports the right of all children, regardless of their abilities, to participate actively in natural settings within their communities. It is an approach to delivering service in which all children are welcomed, supported and valued. It means that the activities of play, learning and growing happen in a way that all children feel that they belong. Supported Child Development recognizes that as parents, you know your child best and are the most important member of the team. We work in collaboration with you and the childcare program to best support your child.
