We care for a child's growth and development. We believe that early identification and early intervention are key to giving each child their best future. Our goal is to reach more children with developmental needs earlier in their life and support their families on their journey. We provide early intervention, school age and specialized services that are community-based, accessible, inclusive and responsive to the needs of children at all stages of their development. Services are delivered in a culture of excellence, diversity, and respect, with a focus on innovation, quality, stability, and positive outcomes for each child, their families, our staff and our community. We are "Helping Kids Shine".


If you have questions about your child's development, you can make a referral to the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre. We also accept referrals from your family doctor, pediatrician, health nurse, and caregivers (with permission from the child's guardian). Participation in our programs is voluntary and we are a free service. We can be contacted Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 4:30pm at the following locations:

For many front line worker, professionals, caregivers and community members our days are often filled with witnessing trauma and suffering, we misplace caring for self while we care for others. Laura van Dernoot Lipsky will offer a complellingmix of personal insight, cutting edge research, and humour to help us understanding the cumulative toll of exposure to suffering (trauma) over time and gain skills to reconcile it.
