ONTARIO EARLY YEARS CENTRE
Lifelong Skills Through Play-based Learning
The first six years are the most important years in a child’s life. The Ontario Early Years Centre-Dufferin provides programming that strives to stimulate the growth, self-worth and stability of children and provides parents/caregivers and families with resources suited to their child’s age and stage.
The Ontario Early Years Centre brings together information about children's services and programs in the community. Parents and caregivers can get answers to questions, access resources and speak with early year's professionals, as well as other parents and caregivers.
