Our Vision, Mission and Values

Our Vision

KidCareCanada Society’s commitment is to contribute to society through well-informed parents and lovingly-nurtured babies who grow up to reach their full potential.

We are recognized as a trustworthy portal for new parents and health and service providers for our educational resources on infant development.

It is our goal to create a positive cycle where parents pass on healthy and safe parenting practices to the next generation.
