Play Learn Connect

Join us for this fun free program for parents/caregiver with children aged 0-6 years! Play and early learning activities include arts and crafts, dramatic play, sensory play, games, songs and stories.  This drop-in program is facilitated by qualified EarlyON Facilitators who are happy to answer questions about early learning and child development, parenting topics, and can provide additional information about other community programs and services. This is also an ideal opportunity for parents and caregivers to connect with others for social and community support.

Bringing Up Baby
Did you have a baby recently?  Are you looking to connect with other parents to talk about your experiences?  Bringing Up Baby is for parents with children birth to 12 months who are looking for an opportunity to connect and engage with an EarlyON Facilitator, community partners, and other parents.  This interactive program will highlight a different topic related to parenting during a baby’s first year.  No fancy toys or special equipment needed!
