Child and Family Centres (EarlyON)

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve, Northumberland County is implementing proactive measures across County services to prevent the spread of this virus. Please note that effective immediately, all EarlyON Centres have been closed and all programming has been postponed until further notice. For up-to-date program and service information, visit our COVID-19 Updates page.

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
