EarlyON Child and Family Centre - London

Family Centres were developed by the Family-Centred Service System (a priority of the London Child and Youth Network) to make it easier for London’s children, youth, and families to participate fully in their community, and to find and receive the services they want and need through a single door access. Through Family Centres and their on-site Community Connectors, families can access information, a range of free or low-cost activities, events, and programs, and get connected to local resources and services that can help make their lives easier. Services include:

  • Parenting & Early Learning
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Public Health and Wellness
  • Recreation
  • Sports and Leisure
  • Youth Services
  • Newcomer Services
  • Referral, Resources, Information and Awareness
