PLAY Who Can Receive CFOSP Services? CFOSP services are available to infants and children residing within the Halton Region and enrolled in a licensed childcare centre (not yet eligible for full-day kindergarten) or attending a licensed before and after school program (up to age 12). CFOSP services are provided within the childcare setting or may be provided within the family home. Children may be experiencing emotional, behavioural, developmental, learning or social difficulties. Families may be struggling with needs around how to support their child in childcare. Problems with sleeping, eating, separation, attachment, anxiety, jealousy or anger beyond the child’s developmental stage can be signs of difficulty.

CFOSP Child and Family

Outreach Support Program



EARLY DEVELOPMENT IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE GROWTH OF YOUR CHILD CFOSP PSYCHOLOGY CFOSP THERAPY SERVICES SERVICES Psychological assessments/ consultations are considered for children when there is a concern about learning, cognitive and/or social emotional functioning. The assessment process may consist of interviews with parents and other professionals, observation of the child, and individual testing. CFOSP Psych services are available to children who fit the CFOSP referral criteria.



BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATION AND SUPPORT SERVICES Consultants work with parents/caregivers helping them understand the social, emotional and developmental needs of children. Consultation and support is available to the childcare centre staff regarding a child’s specific needs. Childcare staff may confidentially contact a member of the CFOSP team to discuss specific difficulties they may be experiencing.

ACCESS SERVICES Parents and caregivers can receive CFOSP services by calling 905-634-2347 x. 439

Families will be seen for an initial consultation within a few weeks to provide them with immediate assistance and to determine which CFOSP services may be useful to their family.


Therapy helps families, or individuals within a family understand and improve the way they interact with each other. Children who fit the CFOSP criteria for referral are eligible for Therapy Services.

Caregiver education and treatment groups may be offered to families, children and child care staff residing in Halton region.

At times play is used to help parents/caregivers learn to read their child’s cues and understand their behaviour in order to strengthen the parent/ child relationship. Within this relationship, a child learns to feel secure, regulate emotions, and interact socially.

Treatment groups address different issues and needs, for example, positive parenting strategies, developing secure parent-child attachment, and parents learning to support their child’s anxiety.
