EarlyON Child and Family Centre

This is a welcoming program which promotes a strong sense of community.

All children, families, and caregivers are welcome. The building is wheelchair accessible and includes an accessible washroom and furniture arranged to promote inclusion for all.

Offering equitable programs is important to us. We do our best to create a sense of community in a welcoming, inclusive environment where everyone feels that they are heard and included, and that they experience a sense of belonging when they are at the EarlyON. Please let us know if you have suggestions about how we might make our space more inclusive.

If you or your child require accommodation, assistance, or support, please let us know how we can help. We’re here if you need us.

There is no cost to come to the EarlyON Family Resource Centre. We are open for families, parents/guardians, caregivers, nannies or any adult caring for children from birth to six years of age.

Learning opportunities are designed to build on children’s interests, strengths, development, and emerging skills. Activities and experiences are crafted to encourage play, inquiry based learning, exploration, engagement, and expression.

During their time at the EarlyON children develop skills such as self-regulation, empathy, taking turns, socializing, making new friends, and practicing routines to help prepare them for child care and school.

Warm, responsive interactions between children, their families and caregivers, early childhood educators, and family resource program staff help to create a sense of belonging and well-being.
