Description (Service) Community Living Early Childhood Resource Consultants are early childhood education specialists who work with children from birth to 12 years of age who have identified delays in their development and attend a licensed childcare or recreational program in the City of Kawartha Lakes. 
Areas that may need attention relate to the areas of development and include:
  • Speech-language 
  • Fine and gross motor skills 
  • Emotional 
  • Cognitive 
  • Sensory 
Activities are designed to address the developmental needs of each child. They are play-based and take place in the environment in which the child is participating.  
Consultants are also available to families, schools and child care centers to support and encourage development, through everyday activities. 
In addition to working with children in their work/play environments, the Early Childhood Resource Consultants provide support to the child’s family. 
Supports may include linking families with community resources, coordinating supports, advocacy and information, formal meeting support (IPRC, case conferences), internet and other relevant resource information searches. 
This program supports about 160 families per month with 8 staff and 1 Manager.  
Day Nurseries Resource Funding: funding for enhanced staffing at childcare centres to assist with inclusion of children with developmental delays. Managed by the Manager of Child and Family Services.
