Strategic Plan


The Niagara Children’s Centre School Authority, through funding from the Ministry of Education, finances bus transportation for all students attending the school. School transportation is provided by First Student Canada.

Due to the large area served by the School, students may be on the bus for up to 90 minutes.

The Transportation information is provided by First Student Canada. Pick-up and drop-off times are provided by First Student Canada who will contact each family in the third week of August. Pick up and drop off times may change over the school year for a variety of reasons. Parents will be given ample notice of any route changes.

During times of poor weather transportation services may be cancelled. Please listen to your local radio and television stations for any cancellation notices. A message will also be placed on the school website by 7:00 A.M.

Transition Planning

The Niagara Children’s Centre School is not designed to be a permanent educational environment for students. Central to our design is the successful transition of students to and from community school placements with replicable strategies for participation in learning as well as the transfer of knowledge from our teachers and therapists to teachers in the broader educational community.

Each transition is carefully planned in consultation with families and the staff of the receiving school.

A transition plan is a guide which outlines the daily, short term and long term changes in a student’s programs. It includes smaller transitions, such as those between activities and environments with the school day, as well as bigger transitions, such as beginning a new grade/school year, or moving to a new school.

The transition plan is reviewed and updated as part of the IEP review process. The transition plan addresses the physical, social/emotional and learning needs of the student as they move through their academic career.

Contained within the transition plan are:

  • Individual goals
  • Actions required to achieve those goals V
  • Identified individuals responsible for actions required
  • Specific timelines for completion

As per Ministry of Education Policy and Program Memorandum 156: “A transition plan must be developed for all students who have an IEP, whether or not they have been identified as exceptional by an Identification Placement and Review Committee (IPRC). The transition plan is developed as part of the IEP.”
