A community collaborative focusing on the care, development and education of our future leaders.

Ontario Early Years Centres print

The years before six are the most influential to a child’s development. How we care for our children during the first six years sets the stage for their lifelong learning, behaviour and health

What is an Ontario Early Years Centre?

Ontario Early Years Centres are places where parents and caregivers can:

  • Take part with their children in a range of programs and activities
  • Get answers to questions
  • Get information about programs and services that are available for young children
  • Talk to early years professionals, as well as other parents and caregivers in the community.

Every Ontario Early Years Centre offers the services listed below. The programs and services are free to all parents and caregivers of young children.

  • Early learning and literacy programs for parents and children.
  • Programs to help parents and caregivers in all aspects of early child development.
  • Programs on pregnancy and parenting.
  • Links to other early years programs in the community.
  • Outreach activities so all parents can get involved with their local Ontario Early Years Centre
