COVID-19 update

Halton’s EarlyON Child and Family Centres are currently offering in-person indoor and outdoor programs, virtual programs, take home activities and other support services.

To attend in-person EarlyON programs, families and caregivers must pre-register for these programs through their local EarlyON Centre. Additional health and safety measures will be in place for in-person programming to support the safety of children, families and staff. To accommodate physical distancing, EarlyON Centres will not be able to serve the same numbers of families as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can contact your local EarlyON Centre for more information on services currently being offered and how to pre-register. Use the links below to learn more.


EarlyON Child and Family Centres provide opportunities for children from birth to six years of age to participate in play and inquiry-based programs, and support parents and caregivers in their roles.

Effective January 1, 2018, Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres will be known as EarlyON Child and Family Centres (external link).
