Our Place Family Resource and Early Years Centre is a Family Resource Centre that offers Early Learning and Family Engagement opportunities to encourage the optimal development of children and families.

We are also a place for parents and caregivers of children up to age 6 to get information and support. Our Place runs the Ontario Early Years programs for Kitchener.


Our Place's Parent Committee is hosting our Colibri Canada Fundraiser for our families to raise money for Our Place programs and services. Check out the "How You Can Help" page for details.

Our Place's Parent Committee is collecting supplies frequently used in programming. Donations can be dropped off at reception during regular operating hours. Thank you for your continued support of Our Place Family Resource and Early Years Centre!
