Kids Can Fly, Early Child Development and Parenting Support, is a registered charity that supports early learning and parenting. We were founded in 2001 and received our charitable status in 2003. We celebrated 20 years of community impact in 2021.
Kids Can Fly is funded by the generosity of local donors, foundations, and businesses. If you’d like to donate, click HERE.
The mandate of Kids Can Fly is to help ALL children maximize their potential. We base what we do on the research of the late Dr. Fraser Mustard.
The foundation of his research is that a baby’s brain is only 20% wired at birth and their experiences (or lack thereof) during the first six years of life set the stage for lifelong learning, health and well being. We also believe that parents are a child’s first and most important teachers and therefore we strive to help provide nurturing and learning for parents so they can do the very best job possible.
Kids Can Fly is a catalyst for change, filling gaps in the community as they appear in order to advocate for children and families.
Kids Can Fly will act as a catalyst for positive change in the promotion of early childhood development in Brantford and Brant County. It will focus its activities on being an advocate for children from prenatal to age 6, and will support parenting as well. In addition, it will seek to ensure early learning and growth opportunities to support ALL children in our community.
