Services for families at the Comox Valley Child Development Association (CVCDA) include access to our Family Advocate. She will usually be the first person you meet when you are referred to or enquire about recieving services at the CVCDA. Our Family Advocate provides an overview of the services and can answer your questions about all CVCDA programs. She also supports families in linking to other community services they may need.

A few of our programs have varying referall processes. If you are unsure of your service needs, please connect first with our Family Advocate. Otherwise, please visit these program pages for more information on their particular referral or registration process:





Referrals to our programs are accepted from families on behalf of your child and/or from a variety of other sources including family physicians, public health nurses, social workers and childcare providers. Families are also welcome to refer their own children.



Fees and Funding


Services at the CVCDA are provided at no cost to families. Funding is provided through the province of B.C. and some community grants.

The Autism Program and JumpStart Preschool do have parent fees. However, we can assist families in accessing full funding through the B.C. Government.
