What is Best Start?

Timiskaming Best Start is about giving kids the best start in life. We do this by making it easier for families to access the support they need to ensure that their children are well, stay well, and have every chance of reaching their full potential.

We integrate all local services so that families throughout the district can locate and access the support they need from a single source. With every service, program, consultation, training and information activity, Timiskaming Best Start adds to the health and vibrancy of local families.

Our Vision

The District of Timiskaming will be a provincial leader in helping children realize their social, intellectual, cultural, economic and physical potential. Children will be ready and eager to achieve success in school by the time they start Grade 1 and will have the supports and skills necessary to maximize their success.
