Together, families will have the chance to connect with EarlyON Educators, build friendships with fellow families and link to resources in the communities.

So come enjoy group play, circle time and learning experiences galore!

Happy Hikers - Join us for fresh air fun in all kinds of weather! Open to all ages (0-6yrs) but best suited for ages 2+. Let's meet to play outside together, share nature-inspired songs and stories, and take a short nature walk on the trails. You and your little ones are sure to feel inspired by all that nature has to offer. Please note that paths and trails may be difficult for strollers in muddy conditions. PLEASE NOTE: This program is only available July 5th, 7th, 12th and 14th .

Let's Stroll! - Newborn to 6 years. Hey parents! Time to hit the pavement and get our bodies moving, while the kids enjoy a ride in the stroller or wagon. We will go for a group walk in the lovely neighborhood surrounding our QEP EarlyON location. This is a great way to get some exercise and fresh air, connect with families, and make new friends. We will meet in our Yolanda Drive Parking Lot. Your safety is our top priority! We will keep a close watch on weather conditions and the environment to ensure outdoor conditions are safe. Please expect an email by 9 am should programs need to be changed, and we will meet in an online forum for a check-in.

Parent Walk & Talk - Newborn to 18 months. Becoming a parent means there are both joys and stressors added to your life. At EarlyON we know it takes a village to raise a child and things like a community of support and physical activity can go a long way to manage these new pressures in a healthy way! This walk & talk program is led by our very own OPCC Family Services Coordinator Kristine, where we will spend time connecting with other parents, enjoying the fresh air in our community, and getting our bodies moving on a neighborhood walk. Parents are encouraged to bring any questions, comments, or concerns you may be facing that day, this is a safe space to share and brainstorm strategies together! PLEASE NOTE: This program is only available July 13th and 27th, 2022

Start your day off right and join us in a cozy, calm space where grownups and their little ones can connect over books and a shared story time! Later, the second half of our time together we’ll move naturally towards getting all those silly's out. Join us as we head outside to enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and encourage big body movements like running, climbing, exploring and more! We can’t wait to see you there!
