Searching for child care is one of the most important jobs we have as parents. We want to find a warm, nurturing and caring environment which promotes our child’s well-being. Where do we start?
Diane and Dawn will provide information and tools to get the search started and the resources available for this to happen.
Supported Child Care is a program offered through Child Care Services. The program supports child care centres and family day homes with resources and funding to enable children with extraordinary needs to attend licensed child care centres and approved family day homes. Diane and Dawn will introduce the program and how the referral process takes place.

Parent and member, Kate Harrington (mom of Zoe Heide) would like to facilitate a Parent Group for members with young adults aged 16 to 30. The purpose of the group is to provide support, encouragement and share information between parents who are facing, going through and have transitioned to the adult world of developmental disability.
The intention for the group is that it will be a safe place to tell your stories, express your frustrations, share your triumphs and learn from each other so we all don’t have to take this journey alone.
We expect to meet for two hours, one evening per month at the EDSS office. To determine what direction the group takes, please fill out the following.

You may have seen some familiar faces on Global TV this month, and heard a familiar tune.
Urbanity Custom Homes Ltd, sponsor of the Uniquely Me song and video which launched last September, has generously donated air time on Global TV to present this video.
Feel free to share this with your friends on social media!
These are fun evenings where moms or dads get together to share advice and stories. They are informal gatherings, ranging in group size, and may involve an activity. This is a group for parents but babes in arms are welcome.

At Uniquely Me 2014 Fashion Show and Fundraiser, we had the world premiere of “Uniquely Me” the song and video. This piece was the brainchild of RJ and Rowena Cui of Planit Sound, who also produced the fundraising event.
This song reminds us all that being unique is a GOOD thing, and we need to celebrate that every single day. So, come now, sing along with us and listen again!
