What parents say:

"It was a wonderful year, my kid went from 2 word "Nouna" and "Dada" to talking all the time and we have to tell him to stay quite at times.
He is confident, learnt a lot more and independent. Norwood is a blessing for families like ours who are new to Canada with no relatives or friends."

"Since my son started HeadStart in September 2023 I've seen many positive changes. for instance, he takes greater pride in sharing his ideas and opinions more confidently. He has also been demonstrating eagerness doing certain tasks independently, such as dressing and toileting. I am grateful for all the wonderful staff at Norwood who help children thrive and become the best version of themselves. My son is so happy with the warm smiles and greetings he receives from all staff as when he enters the building."

"Norwood resource Centre was always a great place to me. I received much help and wonderful supports that I needed. The HeadStart program was good improvement for my child."
