Birth - Three

This program is for infant to 3-year-old children with developmental delays. 

While all young children grow and change at their own rate, some children experience delays in their development. Little Learners, an Early Intervention Service, offers support and referral services designed to meet the unique developmental needs of each child and their family. Accessing services as early as possible will ensure the best developmental outcomes for your child.
