Ontario Early Years Centre is now EarlyON Child & Family CentreEarlyON_English_Horizontal resized

Beginning in January 2018, Ontario Early Years and three other existing Child & family programs have been united under the EarlyON brand.  EarlyOn Child & Family centres are welcoming, supportive and accessible places where children (birth- 6 years) and their parents, grandparents and caregivers play and learn together.

Families can feel reassured that this will be a smooth transition with familiar staff, locations and experiences.

EarlyON Child & Family Centre will still be offering free high quality programs and services for families with children birth-6 years.  These centres will offer families opportunities for their young children to be involved in play and inquiry-based programs, and to support parents and caregivers in their role.

The Regional Municipality of York will be responsible for the management of York Region’s EarlyON Child & Family Centres, and this re-branding is a part of the Ministry of Education’s long-term plan towards evolving and integrating early years programs and services in Ontario.
