Social Distancing with EarlyON


View of the Child: Children are competent, capable of complex thinking, curious, and rich in potential.

During our first years of life, the brain develops at an astounding rate. Scientists now know this process is not just genetic but is dramatically influenced by our early experiences with people and our surroundings. (How does Learning happen, Ontario’s Pedagogy for Early Learning)

We hold children and childhood in deep regard. We believe parents and caregivers are children’s first teachers that influence positive experiences and outcomes for their children, family and community.

EarlyON Child and Family Centre

EarlyON Child and Family Centres provide opportunities for children from birth to 6 years of age to participate in play and inquiry-based programs, and support parents and caregivers in their roles. Our EarlyON centres will offer safe and welcoming environments open to all families throughout North & Centre Wellington, with qualified professionals and quality programs. Families and caregivers will be able to find support, advice, make personal connections and access a network of resources.
