Ontario is making it easier for children and their families to access high quality early years programming and services with the launch of 100 new EarlyON Child and Family Centres across the province.

Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Education, and Indira Naidoo-Harris, Minister Responsible for Early Years and Child Care, were at College Montrose Children’s Place  in Toronto today to announce that Ontario is building 100 new centres and bringing four existing child and family programs under a new EarlyON brand.

EarlyON Child and Family Centres will be open to all families across Ontario, and provide support, advice, personal connections and a network of resources as well as play- and inquiry-based programs for young children. The 100 new EarlyON centres will be created over the next three years.

Creating more opportunity for young children and their families is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
