The Supported Child Development Program (SCDP) supports children to fully participate in inclusive neighborhood child care programs.
Ages 0 to 12 years.
Child care programs include licensed preschool, group daycare, family child care and school age care. SCDP serves children from birth to age 12 who have a developmental delay or disability and require extra support. A developmental delay or disability may affect physical, cognitive, communicative, social, emotional or behavioural development.
Participation is voluntary and SCDP services are free of charge. Parents are responsible for child care fees.
The SCDP guiding principles are inclusion, family centred, individual planning, child development, community based, respect for cultural diversity, and training and support for parents and childcare providers.
Referrals: Parent/Guardian, doctors, nurse, social workers, and other professionals. Referrals should only be made with parent/guardian knowledge and consent.
