THANK YOU to Daniel, of Patisserie Daniel, on Cook Street in Victoria, BC! Daniel is a strong supporter of early childhood. He takes his role as dad seriously and talks with love about his children. He even watched and commented on the “Conversations with KIDCARECANADA” SHAW TV shows that aired in many parts of BC last year.

It is never too late to nurture a child, but early nurture is best. Every parent can learn how to do this. The ABCs book - ABCs for New Parents - on the KIDCARECANADA website provides a simple “how to” and leads parents to additional resources on social and emotional development, most often videos on the same topic. You can find the free online version of the book here  http://kidcarecanada.org/abcs-new-parents-book
