Who is KidCareCanada

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. You can access all of our resources free on this site.

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