EarlyON Child and Family Centres

As of January 2018, families with children birth up to six years of age in the Wellington County and Guelph have access to family supports programmes and services through EarlyON Child and Family Centres.

EarlyON Child and Family Centres provide children and parents/caregivers opportunities to participate in high quality play and inquiry-based programmes that are led and facilitated by Registered Early Childhood Educators who will model responsive adult-child interactions and support all parents/caregivers in their roles, as defined in How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years

EarlyON Child and Family Centres offer safe and welcoming environments open to all families with young children where they can make connections, find support and advice about parenting and child development and access resources and a network of community supports and specialized services.

UPDATE: As of April 1, 2021, EarlyON Child and Family Centre locations in the City of Guelph and the County of Wellington are closed for in-person services due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  

EarlyON locations may be closed but WE ARE STILL HERE!

During this time, EarlyON operators will continue to be available to provide support to families including sharing resources, answering your questions about parenting, and child development and providing virtual programming.  To access this support, please contact one of the EarlyON operators listed below.
