Realizing optimal potential.
Lansdowne Children's Centre provides services and supports for infants, children and youth with communication, developmental and/or physical needs.
We work with your child and family in our centres, virtually and in a variety of community settings such as homes, schools, childcares and camps, to reach more clients and families.
Lansdowne Children's Centre proudly delivers SmartStart Hub services, serving Brantford, Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk Counties, the Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations.
Lansdowne Children's Centre is privileged to have Dr. Ben Klein, a Developmental Paediatrician, as the Medical Director.
Clients receiving other services are eligible to have an assessment completed by the Developmental Paediatrician.
Clients needing multiple services are also eligible for Holistic Integrated Teams (HITs).
In 2021, Lansdowne Children's Centre was recognized by the Chamber of Commerce of Brantford-Brant as winner of the Bell Community Builder Award.

Accessibility, Health and Safety
Lansdowne Children's Centre commits itself to the continual improvement of access to its facility policies, programs, practices and services for clients and their family members, staff, volunteers and members of the community with disabilities; the participation of persons with disabilities, or family members, in the development and review of its annual accessibility plans; and the provision of quality services to all clients and their family members and members of the community with disabilities.
As an expression of gratitude and appreciation to those whose territory we reside on. and to honour the Indigenous people who have lived here from time immemorial, we acknowledge that Lansdowne Children's Centre is on traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnawbe and Haudenosaunee peoples, located on the Haldimand Tract, six miles either side of the Grand River along its length as given to the Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mississaugas of the Credit. We seek to understand our place within history and build mindfulness of our present solidarity with Indigenous partners through relationships in supporting families so their children reach their full potential.
