About

KidCareCanada takes the science of Early Childhood Development and brings it to new parents in a visual format that is easy-to-understand and quick to watch. Wonderful research on Early Childhood Development takes place in Canadian universities and hospitals, yet this information is most frequently not accessible to parents and caregivers. To develop and distribute our resources, we work collaboratively with health providers, educational institutions and other organizations who support families.

During pregnancy, the focus falls mainly on pregnancy and birth. Then, all of a sudden, baby arrives and you are PARENTS with the full responsibility for all aspects of care of a new life. It can be challenging - especially when you find yourself completely alone with your new baby. It can also be magical and a lot of fun.

KidCareCanada supports you, with trustworthy information, so that you can relax and enjoy your baby!
