Early Childhood Intervention Programs (ECIPs) are a province-wide network of community-based supports for families of children who experience developmental delays. ECIPs utilize a strength-based approach to deliver family-focused, home- and centre-based services to families.  Early Childhood Interventionists and Consultants build trusting relationships with families and assist them in working toward mutually-identified goals.

ECIP organizations share the vision of ". . . all families hav[ing] the capacity to meet the developmental needs of their children".

Children who are involved with ECIPs are often delayed in reaching age-appropriate developmental milestones such as walking, talking, eating, manoeuvring, playing or interacting socially with others, or are born with a condition or diagnosis that makes it more difficult for them to develop at rates that are typical for a specific age group.

ECIP staff provide a link between families and other professionals in the Early Learning and Child Care sector and the PreK-12 sector. They strive to work collaboratively with child care providers, speech and language pathologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, early childhood psychologists, teachers, and school administrators, among others, to ensure family-centred goals are achieved and smooth transitions to school and other centre-based programs and services occur.
