Child Circle Project

Child Circle Project

In collaboration with Region 8 Child and Family Services, the Child’s Circle Project provides support services for students and families.

Services are available to all students and their families, the intent is to improve students’ success in school. Therefore, priority is given to those students identified as at risk of academic failure, of social and emotional functioning problems, and at risk of poor physical well-being. The “at risk” population may include but is not necessarily restricted to the student’s inability to establish or maintain satisfactory relationships with others.  Inappropriate behavior or feeling under ordinary conditions.  Signs of depression or general mood of unhappiness, difficulty accepting personal responsibility or accountability.

This also includes students who have physically unmet needs and health concerns, students who suffer from low self-esteem and no self confidence or negative self image. As well as students experiencing chronic academic underachievement, absenteeism, or chronic tardiness.

The Child’s Circle workers focus on supports that assist children or youth to be ready to learn.  The service delivery approach is one of respect and understanding of the cultural diversity and community environment of the children, youth and families accessing services. Where external supports are needed or are in place, the worker collaborates to strengthen the liaisons between providers and for seamless service delivery to clients.

The Child’s Circle Worker provides individual and Group interventions, strategies and supports for students and their parents / caregivers within a collaborative environment.  Our mission is to have successful children, to provide family support and to connect our families with community services that may assist them on an as need be basis.
