"The ECDSC is a wonderful resource and a definite asset to working in the ECE field. The staff are so friendly and helpful and genuinely care about helping us help the children. Keep up the great work!"
Early Childhood Educator

The ECDSC strives to encourage quality childcare through the provision of current information, resources, support and training opportunities for Early Childhood Professionals, students, and parents. Supporting these individuals ensures productive, committed, and healthy, long-term professionals and promotes the Early Childhood field as a valuable and essential career.

The Support Centre houses a lending library with a wide variety of resources for both children and adults. Documentation materials, loose parts, and equipment are also available for use in our quiet workroom or to take back to your program.

Hands on professional development and networking opportunities provide opportunities to network with others and gain new knowledge or refresh previous learning. Taking the time to attend these valuable events helps participants enhance their own personal development as well as that of their program. Our workshops cover a wide range of topics and styles.
