The BC Centre for Ability is committed to inclusive child care that supports families and enhances all children’s experiences.

Working with daycares, preschools, family daycares and out of school care programs, we provide consultation services and extra staffing assistance to ensure inclusive practices for children who have a demonstrated need for extra support.

We also provide help and information to parents so they can access the kind of care that best suits their child’s needs, and administer financial support on behalf of the Ministry of Children and Family Development. In addition, we operate a toy lending library.

Supported Child Development

Supported Child Development Program assists families of children who require additional support to access inclusive child care. SCD provides support for child care staff, families and their children, up to 12 years of age, in licensed daycare, preschool or out-of-school care programs. Youth, 13 to 19 years of age, are considered on an individual basis.
