WHO WE ARE
Family and Early Childhood Anglophone East Inc. is committed to assisting parents with the challenging task of raising young children according to their individual needs and potential. We are a voluntary, confidential, and individualized program. Emphasis is placed on the strengths and abilities of each child and their family to assist parents to address any developmental and behavioral concerns they may have for their children.
Our agency accepts referrals from parents or legal guardians, as well as from all professionals having obtained legal consent from parents/legal guardians. Requests for services can be made directly to our office, at which point a screening process to determine eligibility and/or appropriate service options will be initiated.
Our agency is funded by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. All programs are free. Areas of focus may include parent-infant attachment, parenting skills, individualized family support, child development, developmental child care services, pre-kindergarten screening (EYE-DA) and follow-up, and/or referrals to other community-based services.
Between the Anglophone and Francophone agencies, we have offices all over New Brunswick, including in Moncton, Fredericton, Saint John, Bouctouche, St-Louis de Kent, Hillsborough, Petitcodiac, and Sackville, to name a few.
Anglophone East offices are located at:
Moncton (Community Peace Center)
Petitcodiac (Petitcodiac Regional School)
Hillsborough (Hillsborough Elementary School)
Port Elgin (Port Elgin Regional School)
Early Intervention Services
This is our most popular service, with approximately 300 children participating each month across the Anglophone East area. An educator will visit your home to help you set goals to support your child’s development, while providing support, assessments, ideas, and a listening ear. Our clients request home visits for a variety of reasons including behaviour, routines, medical issues, family dynamics, and more. Our educators all have strong educational backgrounds in child development, with years of experience working in family and early childhood education.
Learn about the importance of building a secure attachment in infants 6-18 months old, and discover how to help your baby learn he or she can depend on you. This program is offered one-on-one through home visits with one of our qualified educators.
Developmental Child Care
For children aged 3-5 who qualify, funding for up to 12 hours per week of daycare or preschool may be available.
Transition to School
Before entering Kindergarten in New Brunswick, children participate in an assessment called the Early Years Evaluation—Direct Assessment (EYE-DA). Family and Early Childhood Anglophone East conducts the EYE-DA at each Anglophone East school and provides follow-up support for children who experience difficulty and whose parents request extra support. Services available include home visits to work on specific goals, parent-child Active Learning Groups at each school, and our regular Early Intervention Home Visiting program.
