Our EarlyON Child and Family Centres are for families who have children birth-six years of age. These programs are NO cost across Ontario and are funded by the Ministry of Education. EarlyON programs are wonderful places to connect and meet new friends for your family in your community. It is a place to learn about positive parenting to help build healthy, happy relationships and a good understanding of your child's development. It is also a wonderful place to participate and be surrounded by fun and interesting activites and ideas that will capture your children's interests and to stir up curiosity. Community Resource Centre (CRC) offers EarlyON programs located in Alma, Arthur, Belwood, Drayton, Erin, Elora, Melville, Fergus, Harriston, Moorefield, Mount Forest, Palmerston and Rockwood.
