EarlyON Child and Family Centres Locations

Children and parents at an early years center

EarlyON Child and Family Centres provide opportunities for children from birth to 6 years of age to participate in play and inquiry-based programs, and support parents and caregivers in their roles. These centres offer safe and welcoming environments open to all families across Hamilton, with qualified professionals and quality programs. Families and caregivers can find support, advice, make personal connections and access a network of resources at these centres.

Selected EarlyON sites also provide Check It Out Drop In sessions, which is a free service where parents can ask health professionals questions about their child. View the Check it Out Schedule 2020 - January to June (PDF, 753 KB).
