Child and Family Centres (EarlyON)

EarlyON Child and Family Centres are where children, parents and caregivers can laugh, be curious, play, learn, make friends and feel a sense of belonging. We offer a wide range of free programs and services that help your child reach their full ability:

  • Programs for children from birth to six years old
  • Play-based and fun learning activities
  • Information on programs on services where you live
  • Opportunities to meet other families with young children
  • Advice from trained professionals
