Early Integration Program (EIP)
What is the Early Integration Program?
The Early Integration Program provides support to children with developmental concerns and/or delays in licensed child care centres, licensed private home day cares and before/after school programs. The Resource Consultant provides developmental screens and assessments and works collaboratively with the child, family, child care centre and other professionals to help children develop to their full potential. The program promotes the inclusion of all children in the Early Learning environment.
The Resource Consultant assists by taking a case management role helping the families navigate through services as well as transitioning to school to ensure everyone is working together to meet the needs of the child.
Enhanced staffing is available to children who require additional support beyond the Child Care Centres capacity.
Who is Eligible for the Early Integration Program?
Children 0 - 6 years of age with a developmental concern and or delay are eligible for the program. Referrals can be made directly to Lansdowne Childrens Centre by parents, or community workers.
What can I expect?
After the referral has been received the Resource Consultant will meet with the family to discuss background information, concerns etc and describe the service and role of the Resource Consultant and the Early Integration Program.
