My daughter and I moved to the area a year ago. She was 15 months old, and meeting new people was a challenge for me. A friend in another town recommended the Early Years Family Centre, and I’m so glad she did! As soon as we walked in the door of the Sacred Heart location, I felt like we were at home. The Centre offered so many amazing activities for my daughter to explore. The lights and sounds were dimmed to avoid over-stimulation. And while there were music and movement classes available, they in no way pushed my very shy little girl to participate when she wasn’t ready. And when I needed to return back to work abruptly, the ECEs kindly game me childcare suggestions. They always provide a listening ear and a helpful hand.
My daughter was a late talker. I was concerned about a speech delay. The ECEs and Speech Language Pathologists were so friendly and helpful! They gave me suggestions of things to try at home, they eased my anxiety, and gave me numbers of professionals to call when I needed. I am eternally grateful for their support and professionalism, and I highly recommend them to all my friends and neighbours!
