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.


ELAWRThe Early Literacy Alliance of Waterloo Region has launched and 'Early Literacy Awareness' Campaign. Each Monday until October 10th one important early literacy message will be released. These messages will be accompanied by two short videos and resources to guide parents on supporting their child's early literacy development. Check it out!

The Avgen fundraiser is up and running once again! This ongoing fundraiser is a great way to give back to the centre. Visit the 'How you can Help' page for details.
