About EarlyON Child and Family Centres

The Ministry of Education has invested in Early Years programming to make it easier for children and their families to access high quality early years programming. 100 new EarlyON Centres (formerly known as Ontario Early Years Centre’s, Family Resource Centres or Parenting and Family Literacy Centres) are being launched across the province over 3 years. The existing centres for Early Years Programs will now all be EarlyON Child and Family Centres and have consistent branding.

This will provide increased early years programming in neighbourhoods that have been underserviced by providing support, advice, personal connections and a network of resources in addition to play and inquiry based programs for young children and their parents/caregivers. The new name is effective January 2018.

Beginning July 1, 2018, there will be new EarlyON drop-in program centres opening up in local neighbourhoods. Check out the calendar on the home page to see drop-in hours and locations.

Our centres are open to all families.  We are a welcoming place that offers a range of services:

  • join fun activities – reading, storytelling, sing-alongs, games, family gym time and more
  • get advice from professionals trained in early childhood education
  • find out about other family services in your community
  • connect with other families with young children during our drop-in play and learn groups or interactive programs
