Welcome to the Early Childhood Community Development Centre

helping early learning & care providers achieve their goals

The ECCDC is an independent, charitable organization dedicated to providing early learning and care professionals and programs in Niagara with affordable access to specialized educational learning resources and the training and supports they need to deliver high quality education and care to young children, and information to parents about early learning choices including licensed and home childcare options in Niagara. These services are funded by the Niagara Region, Children's Services Department who also serves as the Systems Manager for Child Care. The Regional Municipality of Niagara does not support the provision of unlicensed child care providers.
The ECCDC supports the provision of quality early learning and care programs outside of Niagara through its resources, consultation and training services, and projects such as Mentoring Pairs for Child Care. Services are available to Early Childhood Educators and teachers, as well as others involved in the education and care of young children. In the 20 years since its creation the ECCDC has become Canada's leading early learning and care resource, referral and support organization.
