Baby Connections® is delivered by trained Facilitators who share the program’s key messages, easy literacy strategies and tips for using the kit of resources.

The Baby Connections program is implemented through Program Partners at more than 30 sites across Waterloo Region and has expanded to Perth County. Baby Connections® @ Home is an online version of the program.

New Facilitators, who will be delivering the Baby Connections program, are required to complete the  Facilitator Training* prior to implementing the program at one of our Program Partner locations. *Facilitator Training includes the Virtual Delivery Supplement.

A Virtual Delivery Supplement for Facilitators session is required for all already trained staff/volunteers before they deliver Baby Connections @ Home.

Experienced Facilitators who wish to refresh the knowledge of their role are encouraged to sign up for a training session. Training sessions are offered online and in-person.
