This page contains information and resources specific to Infant Development Programs (IDP).
IDP is funded by the BC Government Ministry of Children & Family Development. The Ministry sets policy that, under their contracts for service, IDP follows. The IDP policy can be accessed by clicking the link below:
The policy above provides broad direction for the services provided by IDP. In following this policy / direction, there can be a need for further information. Resources in the IDP Resources Manual (see link below) can be of value in this process, as long as they are in keeping with the specific policy. Over time, it is hoped that additional resources will be developed to replace those in the manual that are not a direct fit for the policy.
When a family currently registered with one IDP is moving to a new community within the lower mainland a referral will be made to the program operating in that community. To accomplish this the referring program will complete the transfer form and the referral form for the new community. Referral forms for lower mainland IDP’s can be accessed in the IDP Program Contact and Website page. To access the transfer form, click on the link below.
