Family Counsellor: 1 Counsellor - Master Degree or equivalent in Marriage & Family Therapy or Counselling or a related field Welcome Warm Greeting on behalf of the entire team of staff at the Child Development Programme, a service of our Ministry of Education. The Child Development Programme, or CDP, as we are often called, is community resource for all families who have children between the ages of birth and four years. We exist to be of support to parents across Bermuda with young children our youngest citizens and our country's future. CDP has discovered that parents usually desire to give their children the best, with the hope that their children will become the best that they can be. CDP has also discovered that parents welcome ideas for parenting, a very special and challenging responsibility. Research shows that the positive involvement of parents, who are the most important persons in the world to a child, is the most important factor in a child s success. This is a primary reason that CDP is committed to working in partnership with parents to support their relationships with their children and to enhance their children s early development. Assisted by this booklet (website), we invite you to learn about the wide array of services CDP is able to provide for children 0-4 years and their families. Involvement with our agency on the part of families is completely voluntary. This said, we strongly encourage families to take full advantage when services are offered by the Child Development Programme because, as our slogan says, Early Intervention is the Best Prevention when it comes to any challenge that can impact development. All CDP services operate with five core values. We are: Family Centered - Families guide the work we do and are the primary decision makers; Relationship Based - WE acknowledge that all learning occurs within the context of relationships; the path to our most effective work is through relationships, and theses relationships support us personally and professionally; Strengths Based - We focus on the strengths of children, families and staff to build relationships and guide interventions: Ecological - We consider the larger environmental context in which children, families, staff and programmes exist as we carry out our work; and Reflective - We take time to think individually and collectively about our work with families and each other, which enhances the quality of what we do, how we feel and influences our interactions. Please feel free to pass by our office at Tynes Bay House, 37 Palmetto Road, Devonshire, DV 05, Bermuda (Tel: ), to become familiar with your free government resources in the Child Development Programme. A warm welcome will await you. Many thanks to all willing to partner with us in the interest of the total wellbeing of Bermuda s children! Jennifer A. Manders, M.A. Child Development Coordinator/ Page 16 Page 5
