Stimulate early childhood development

To help children get a good start in life

To break the cycle of poverty, it is crucial to intervene in the first years of a child's life.

Thanks to your donations, Centraide supports a network of 43 agencies and projects whose mission is to help children develop. An annual investment of $1.5 M.

We can't truly help children succeed without taking their environment into account. This is why early childhood development and support for parents and families often go hand-in-hand at agencies in this sector.

Concrete and lasting initiatives:
  • Infant stimulation (early reading activities, psychomotor workshops)
  • Kindergarten readiness
  • Reinforcement of parenting skills (information workshops, support groups for parents)
  • Parent-child activities
