Family Services

Childcare Family services

Our Family Services portfolio was introduced at the beginning of 2016, having identified the need to provide a range of supports to families, centres and our team. In Kindercare’s mission statement, we commit to “providing outstanding early childhood care and education”, and to “develop each child’s full potential”. In our experience, the challenges facing some families impact their children – and in order to ensure the best outcomes for children, we saw value in putting together a team with the skills, resources and inter-agency connections to provide a confidential intervention service that could make a difference for each child.

The role of the Family Services team ranges from talking with parents/care givers, consulting with teachers, observing children to making referrals to various agencies, putting support plans in place, resourcing families and our staff, and offering parenting tips and workshops to compliment what families and our centres are already doing.
