Referrals to the Child Development Centre can be made by families, physicians, public health nurses, social workers, childcare providers, and other related professionals. If a referral is being made by someone other than the family, the family needs to be in agreement with the referral prior to contacting us.

The referral process and what comes next:

  • You can call us at (867) 456-8182 or 1-866-835-8386 to make a referral over the phone.
  • Download the Referral Form, fill it out and fax it to us at (867) 393-6374, or drop it off at our office.
  • Once we receive the referral, we will contact you to set up a time to meet or talk over the phone. We try and do this as soon as possible; however, when there are waitlists, this can sometimes take up to 2 or 3 weeks.
  • When we meet you will have a chance to tell us about concerns or ask questions you may have about your child’s development.
  • We can meet here at the Centre or at your home - whatever works best for you.
  • We will talk about the different types of programs and services that we have available.
  • Together we will come up with a plan for services and consent forms will be completed.
  • If there is a waitlist for the type of service you require, this will be discussed and your child's name will be added to the list.
