For a number of years we have identified the need for youth and adult services for those with developmental challenges. In 2010 we became a qualified provider with CLBC – Community Living British Columbia to provide services for this population in our community. This would address a gap in services and address a growing service need. To do this our mandate is evolving and the board is taking a lead to review this, including our name. The Child Development Centre KCDC no longer reflects the range of services we provide. We have struggled for a number of years on what name to change to and this year in our Board and Administrative plan we will employ a marketing consultant to help us work through a name change, a branding exercise and a communication plan.
Currently, the KCDC offers Pre-birth to Preschool Services, Early Intervention Services, Supported Child Development Services, Child and Youth Services as well as Family Programs.
