Grandview Kids is a Children’s Treatment Centre located in Durham region and serves more than 6,000 children each year with a variety of programs and services. Their existing site was very dated and cumbersome to navigate and it made it difficult for parents to learn about the programs and services available and what to expect. Floating-Point was commissioned to redesign the site and one of the first challenges was to consolidate the site content into an easy to navigate architecture. As part of this we focused on highlighting the ‘Your Child’s First Visit’ so parent’s knew what to expect and also what to bring. We coupled this with friendly and engaging testimonies to add a real personal element to the site.
Video footage was incorporated into the home page to showcase how the organization helps and photos of the Grandview children and parents were incorporated throughout the site. Some of the site features include Level AA compliant, newsletter sign-up, online forms, a blog to promote news and events and Google Map Integration.
