The YMCA supports the Minister of Education’s recent announcement regarding the re-opening of EarlyON Child and Family Centres in the fall.

We are awaiting further information and operational guidelines from the Ministry and further direction from Niagara Region Children’s Services in regard to the local plan and requirements for centres which will ensure the health and safety of our Early Years professionals, children and families.

We remain committed to keeping you informed and will provide updates regarding our re-opening approach as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

EarlyON Child and Family Centres Virtual Services

Our YMCA EarlyON Child and Family Centres are currently closed in alignment with provincial legislation and efforts to promote public safety and support physical distancing in response to the COVID 19 pandemic.

EarlyON Program Facilitators continue to provide services for children, parents and caregivers virtually. We are able to support you, answer questions and provide resources by telephone, email and through our social media posts on Facebook and Twitter.

Parents and caregivers may also sign up for interactive sessions offered online such as Weekly Circle Time, Bedtime Story Sessions and Parent Education Workshops.

Reach us by telephone Monday to Friday.
