Kiwanis Club Sponsorship to Provide Innovative Infant and Toddler Resources for Niagara's Licensed Child Care Centres

Approximately 172 licensed child care centres in Niagara will receive unique infant and toddler materials and complimentary training thanks to a generous contribution of more than $20,000 from the Kiwanis Clubs of Niagara. The infant and toddler materials are called "treasure baskets" and they provide sensory-rich play experiences for pre-verbal children and support the development of play schemas. The innovative resources will be sourced by the Early Childhood Community Development Centre, a longstanding charity offering resources, training and organizational supports to early learning programs within Niagara and across Ontario for close to 30 years.
