Welcome to OSNS

Child & Youth Development Centre

We envision a community in which all children and youth reach their full potential. 

We've been helping children overcome developmental challenges in their movement, play, speech, language, learning, attention and behaviour since 1978. 
The truth is, raising and supporting children challenges us
to be our best. 
What we do at OSNS

We provide education and early intervention treatment to children facing developmental challenges. We assist in guiding and supporting the families of these children.
