EarlyON Letter to Parents and Caregivers

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

In February 2017, the Ontario government announced the transformation of the delivery of early year’s programs for children and families. Starting in January 2018, Ontario Early Years Centres, Parenting and Family Literacy Centres, Child Care Resource Centres and Better Beginnings, Better Futures centres will collectively be known as EarlyON Child and Family Centres. These EarlyON Centres will be open to all families across Ontario, and provide support, parenting programs, personal connections and a network of resources as well as play and inquiry based programs for young children.

Satellite Child and Family Programs currently in schools will be relocated to the community as our School Boards and community partners address the Province’s “School’s First” approach to include EarlyON Child and Family Centres in schools.

EarlyON Child and Family Centre | Simcoe Community Services

In Simcoe County, the lead agencies that currently deliver Ontario Early Years Programs will remain the same. You can expect the same quality of services you have been receiving.

Services may be offered in different locations in your community. EarlyON Child and Family sites were carefully determined using many factors including: data related to population, community need and other early year’s factors.

French Language Services for EarlyON Child and Family Programs will now be delivered through La Clé across Simcoe County.

We are excited about this transformation for families with children age 0 to 6 as we know that The Early Years Matter!  If you have any questions about this transformation, please contact your local lead agency.

Below you will find a list of the EarlyON main sites and satellite sites. All satellite sites will offer services one-two days per week and main sites will offer services up to 6 days per week.

Main Programs offered up to 6 days per week will be located county-wide at:
