Welcome to the Children's Planning Table!
The Children's Planning Table is a collaborative of service providers, planning bodies and funders who have come together to plan how services can be better coordinated for children in Waterloo Region.
Mandate: The mandate of the Children's Planning Table is to serve as an integrated planning table for children's services from pre-birth to 18 years of age in Waterloo Region. The Children's Planning Table serves as Waterloo Region's Best Start Network. This planning table will take on the role of developing an Early Years Community Plan over the next few years.
Vision: The Children's Planning Table's vision is that all children in Waterloo Region live in a community that supports their developmental health through a system of coordinated and effective services.
Membership: All organizations providing support services to children (pre-birth to 18 years of age) are considered stakeholders at the planning table.
