Children are accepted to the Children’s Centre School Authority through a referral process. Referral packages are reviewed by the Admissions Committee whose members include the School Principal, the Special Education Consultant and the Manager of Clinical Services.

Decisions for admission are based on a variety of factors including entry criteria, availability of spots, and student groupings.

Who Can Refer a Child?

Referrals are accepted from the Niagara Children's Centre and coterminous school boards.
