Let’s Play! - Newborn to 6 years. Join us as we come together to learn and grow through the powers of play! Open to ages newborn to 6 years, this beloved program combines a variety of learning experiences that are sure to engage all the senses. Together, families will have the chance to connect with EarlyON Educators, build friendships with fellow families and link to resources in the communities. This program also looks to make the best of both worlds, making use of both the indoor & outdoor play environment. This flexibility in space allows Educators to follow the families leads by sharing in the children’s natural curiosities of the day! Please be sure to prepare to spend time indoors & outdoors.

Nature Explorers Club - Newborn to 6 years. Join us as we keep the fun going outside! Available to ages newborn to 6 years, enjoy being one with nature as we embark on weekly adventures that look to make the most of all mother nature has to offer and more! Join us for weekly adventures in nature’s classroom, where we will take our time, observe, explore and learn about the world, ourselves and each other. As we head into the cooler seasons please be mindful to ensure everyone is dressed for the colder weather with layers, hats, mitts, boots and more! Please note, program is scheduled to run for an hour and fifteen minutes, but it is important you follow your own comfort level. You are always welcome to come and go as you and your child need. 

Weekend Wonders - Newborn to 6 years. Weekends are times to let loose, explore and try something new. Join us for a Saturday morning program where the focus is on family connection, slowing down and taking time to enjoy time spent together. Our well-equipped playrooms and amazing educators will help to ensure you have what you need to learn and grow together.

Baby & Me - Newborn to 12 months. It is never too early to introduce your child to the wonderful world of free-play, circle time and new little friends! See your baby blossom and grow as you sing, play and learn together. Enjoy the chance to meet other parents and connect with EarlyON Educators on a weekly basis!

Toddler Time - 12 to 30 months. Toddlers are curious about the world. This is a program designed just for them! Enjoy a variety of experiences led by the children’s interests that will encourage them to see, touch and explore all that is around them. With your child’s development in mind our educators will create opportunities for children to learn more about their ideas and their environment. So come enjoy group play, circle time and learning experiences galore!

Parent Talk - Newborn to 2.5 years. There is so much to talk about!! Becoming a parent means there are so many questions. Join this program facilitated with OPCC Family Services Coordinator Kristine, where together we will explore some of the answers to those many unknowns. We will talk about sleep, feeding, temperament, child development and so much more. We will begin our program with a topic each week in a short discussion circle and then spend some time playing together! Come join the group to learn and grow together.

Let's Stroll! - Newborn to 2.5 years. Hey Parents! Time to put on your walking shoes, while the kids enjoy a ride in the stroller or wagon. We will go for a group walk in the lovely neighbourhood surrounding our QEP EarlyON location. This is a great way to get some exercise and fresh air, connect with families, and make new friends. Your safety is our top priority! As we head into the colder weather, we will keep a close watch on weather conditions to ensure the sidewalks are safe to be out and about. Please expect an email by 9 am should program need to be changed. 

Maximum of four programs per family per session, and only one adult per family.
