Our EarlyON Child and Family Centre offers parents and caregivers a wide range of fun and educational free drop-in or pre-registered programs and activities to do with their children.

Our free programs are here to help you! We have both drop-in and registered programs — our schedule will tell you which kind of program it is!

For drop-in programs: You do not need to register before coming to the program.
