COVID-19 Resources

Children, youth and families are the heart of Five Counties Children’s Centre. In these extraordinary times we are incredibly grateful for the continued support from our families, staff and community partners. We are all happy to see some of the COVID-19 restrictions lifting; however, we know that COVID-19 is still with us, and the risk has not abated.

That is why Five Counties Children’s Centre will remain a masked organization and operate with our current practices and procedures. We will continue to require clients, families and visitors to mask and complete our screening process when visiting any of our sites.

Five Counties continues to be committed to the health and safety of our clients and families as well as of our staff.  As you prepare for your visit, please note that we ask that only one parent/caregiver accompany their child for their in-centre appointment whenever possible. Please contact your clinician(s) should you have any questions or if you have concerns about your service needs.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Be well, stay safe and we will see you soon.

Visiting Five Counties Children’s Centre

If you or your child are feeling sick on the day of your appointment, whether it is here at the Centre or an in-home visit with our staff, please call us as soon as possible. We would be happy to reschedule your appointment to another date and time. Our first priority is the health and safety of everyone.
It is important that you stay home when you are sick or suspect that you might be sick to prevent the spread of infection.
Please help keep everyone healthy and safe. Thank you.

If you are coming to one of our sites for an In-Centre visit, things will be a little different. 
Here is Jess with a quick over view of what you might experience when visiting Five Counties.

Hover Box Element

I Got a Vaccine was designed for SMILE Canada a non-profit that supports families with children with disabilities – to support children through the vaccine process.

The story and illustrations include culturally relevant characters, so children can see themselves in the book and use Safa’s experience and strategies as a way to help make the vaccine process less scary for themselves.

There is also a Bravery Award that is found at the end of the book.
