Children are born with unique gifts, strengths and needs. Together with families and the community, we nurture their potential through support and knowledge specific to their growth and development.


Established in 1982, the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre services are community-based, accessible, inclusive and strength-based. 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 believe in “Helping Kids Shine ”.



If you have a question about your child's development, you can make a referral to us. We also accept referrals from your family doctor, pediatrician, health nurse and caregiver (with permission from the child's guardian). Participation in our programs is voluntary and free.
