To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support the safety of our families and staff, the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre is temporarily closing all in-person services such as home based visits, centre based visits, and groups in all locations. 

Staff will continue to work from home and in the office while maintaining social distancing.  We are committed to providing as many services as we can via telephone or online and are currently working on ways to provide additional virtual services for families.  We will continue to take new referrals and connect with families about their concerns.
