Covid-19 News and Updates

Get news and updates about how are managing the crisis.  



We are in the midst of some\n very challenging times with the coronavirus. Like many organizations, schools\n and programs, we are implementing proactive, preventative measures to ensure\n everyone’s health and safety.


Currently our physical EarlyON site is closed to the public until May 4th and will be re-evaluated\n based on government recommendations. This will ensure that as a community we do\n what we can to reduce and prevent the transmission of the virus. This decision\n was made with consideration of many factors – namely the health of our patrons\n and communities/families.


Our EarlyON facilitators are\n available to you as we move our programing and services online. Although our\n administrative offices are closed to the public, our staff continue to be\n available by phone and email to answer questions.


While our space is unavailable\n for the time being, there are many things that are readily available –\n outdoors, music, dancing, reading, counting, laughter, hiking, walking around\n neighbourhood, baking or cooking together and the list goes on! Check out our\n social media feeds for ideas and suggestions to do with the little ones!
