Who We Are

The principle of integration or inclusion guides the provision of services to children and families of Niagara Children’s Centre. This principle requires client integration into community-based services. Early Childhood Education Resource teachers (ECE-RT’s) are professionals who provide specialized supports to ensure that children experience success within a fully integrated child care centre classroom. Such supports may include the development of improved readiness to learn in the following areas:

  • cognitive
  • gross motor
  • fine motor
  • speech and language
  • behavioural
  • social
  • emotional

Early Childhood Education is a regulated profession in Ontario.


ECE-RTS at Niagara Children’s Centre provide single discipline and team-based services through our Infant and Preschool program as well as in Glenridge Hill Child Care.
