General Information
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: 

  • Discuss with the program facilitator and share information about parenting, child development, nutrition, play-based learning and other topics that support the role of the parent/caregiver.
  • Become familiar and build positive connections with the school
  • Obtain information on community resources
  • Access a multilingual book lending library

EarlyON locations:
Our centres are open to all families in Ontario.
We follow the school calendar and do not operate on PA days or holidays. Please note that the centres are closed the last Friday of each month for Professional Development.
