KidsAbility — Centre for Child Development, established in 1957, aims to help children and young adults with developmental, physical and communication disabilities. The Centre provides services to children from birth to eighteen years of age. Services may be provided in homes, childcare agencies, schools and community settings.

 For many years Pete was involved with the vital work of this agency. It was his way of contributing, bringing attention to their vital programs through paintings and reproductions.

Peter Etril Snyder is a very dear friend of KidsAbility. Peter beautified the lobby of the Centre in Waterloo with a “seasonal cycle” mural following it’s opening in 1995. He then painted two other “countryside” murals on the walls of the Pavilion. Since 1999 Peter has created an annual painting for KidsAbility to help raise awareness of the Kids Can’t Wait Campaign. His paintings reflect the founding decade of KidsAbility and include various landmarks that existed in Waterloo Region in the 1950’s.
