Nurturing the Potential of Future Generations 

WORK ROOM RESERVATIONS

The Early Years Community Development Centre is a place where young children and the people who work with them are celebrated and supported.

Resources have been carefully selected to support professional learning and skill development. Curriculum materials, toys, and books with a focus on inclusion and diversity are available for loan. Over 3600 resources are available. EYCDC staff aim to provide a space where play, curiosity, reflection, and intentionality come together to enrich quality. The EYCDC supports the early years community by increasing collaboration among early childhood educators and other early years professionals. Together we put our shared knowledge into practice to support good outcomes for young children and their families.

EYCDC staff are passionate and committed to supporting our community. We are skilled and knowledgeable early childhood specialists who are eager to engage in conversations about this complex work, share ideas, and help you to the information and resources you are looking for. We offer much more than toys and books. We offer professional development workshops on a wide variety of topics, as well as communities of practice facilitated by EYCDC staff. We are happy to offer meeting and workspace to individuals and programs who are interested in collaborating while they have all our EYCDC resources at their fingertips.

EYCDC services are offered with the support of the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
