Caring for a child can be an experience full of love, hope, dreams, fears and joy. When you come to EarlyON Child and Family Centres, you can learn, connect and play with your child, meet other people and receive parenting information from trained Early Childhood Educators.
When you attend an EarlyON program you can expect to find opportunities for sensory play, creative art, music and movement, language and literacy, cognitive and problem solving, science and nature, dramatic play and active play.
EarlyON offers free, drop-in programs for parents and caregivers with children from birth to 6 years of age. Parents and caregivers can drop-in and leave at any point during the scheduled programming time.
What happens at EarlyON?
EarlyON environments are thoughtfully planned to create both active and quiet spaces. This provides opportunity for children to play independently or together in a variety of ways. Stories, songs and other facilitated group experiences can take place at any time during the program, based on the interest of program participants. Group experiences are optional for children, family and caregivers in attendance.
EarlyON programs use an emergent curriculum model. This means that EarlyON staff plan the learning experiences they offer based on the interests and developing skills of the children in attendance at the program.
