Building Blocks Program

The Building Blocks Program is an early intervention home visiting program for first-time parents with children up to five years of age.

This weekly visiting program is designed to support, maintain and enhance individual and family functioning by improving birth outcomes and parenting skills.

  • Enhance child development and provide families with access to early intervention services.

  • Referrals can be made from the last trimester of pregnancy until the baby is six months old.

  • Referrals are welcome by self or a service provider as long as the family gives consent.

  • Building Blocks is free and voluntary.

Building Blocks providers are comprised of Family Support Home Visitors, Public Health Nurses and Social Work Consultants. As a team, they offer support by listening to you and hearing your concerns, encouraging you, accompanying you to a variety of appointments, and by sharing information about community resources, childcare, parenting, and health and social issues.
