EarlyON Child and Family Centre

EarlyON Child and Family Centres

Centres will be closed from March 12 to 16, 2018 during the March Break


In January 2018, the EarlyON Child and Family Centres integrated child and family programs under one system. In Ottawa, this consolidated four programs – Ontario Early Years Centres, Parenting and Family Literacy Centres, Child Care Resource Centres and Better Beginnings, Better Futures.

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board operates EarlyON Child and Family Centres (formerly known as Parenting and Family Literacy Centres) in eight elementary schools. The EarlyON Child and Family Centres offer programs for families and their children from birth to age 6 that build positive adult/child relationships, encourage children’s exploration through play and inquiry and can facilitate community connections for families. While at the Centre, families can:
