BREAKING NEWS

important infoPlease note; Our Place will be closed Saturday February 17th until Monday February 19th. The centre will re-open at 9:00am Tuesday February 20th.      

The centre will also be closed Saturday February 24th for staff training and will re-open Monday February 26th at 9:00am.


                 EarlyOn A plan is underway to give more children and families in Waterloo Region access to programs that help them learn, grow and connect together. Programs for children up to age six are available at Ontario Early Years Centres (OEYCs); but the Province is creating a better system to deliver these programs. This involves changing the name of OEYCs to EarlyON Child and Family Centres.

In early January, EarlyON signs will go up at OEYCs in the region. These centres will continue to offer a variety of programs and services that support early learning and development, engage parents and caregivers, and make connections for families.

These changes are guided by the Ministry of Education’s vision and How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years.
