Ongoing Supports offered by our Child Development Advisors at Fireside School

The CDA may refer students and / or families to other individuals or agencies. Students can drop by and talk to the CDA any time, if they are facing a challenge. Parents may contact one of our Child Development Advisors by telephoning the school. The CDA offers students a place to talk and discuss in confidence. As well, guidance can be given with organizational skills, stress management and friendship skills.
