Our Purpose

Since ASCY began in October of 1994, it has grown to become a well integrated and highly utilized component of the early learning and child care community in Hamilton.

A major area of focus for our agency is early intervention and prevention. We believe the early years are critical in a child’s development. The first few years in a child’s life have a dramatic affect on their health, ability to learn and function in day-to-day life.

Early investment in quality care and education has improved later outcomes of success for all children regardless of socio-economic background. We believe that by providing professional learning, resources and supports to early years and child care practitioners and other professionals working with children, we are playing an important role in fostering a positive outcome for all children.
