Our Principles

  • Etobicoke wide: Within Etobicoke, there are regional differences in the needs of the population. The Coalition provides program resources to all three Teams.
  • Young children in the context of their families: We provide programs and services for children ages 0-6, their families and their communities.
  • Working in partnerships: Partner agencies work together, and share information, skills and resources to accomplish common goals in the community.
  • Community involvement: Members of the community are involved in planning so that programs offered by partner agencies are as appropriate, as supportive and as easy to access as possible. Community involvement promotes the development of the community itself.
  • Planning: The Coalition is committed to planning at the local and systemic levels and participates in networks and planning initiatives for children and families in our community.
