Testimonials

“We are so grateful to the Nanaimo CDC for all the support they have given our family over the past 15 years to help our daughter Caylee.
Having a child with different abilities can be overwhelming at times and knowing I have a team of professionals in my corner to provide therapy, support, and education is such a blessing.
Our community is so lucky to have the NCDC close to home. The support they give is so impactful to the children and families.
A heartfelt Thank you to all the past and present staff who have been a part of our journey. We know that Caylee has benefited immensely from all the therapies and support that she has received.
Thank you
The McCaw Family.”
