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. Be sure to dress for the weather but please note, programs will move in-doors if need be.

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.

Tales & Tunes - 6 to 15 months. Music, singing and stories are an important part of childhood. Join us and share your favorite childhood songs with your little one, learn some new tunes, and enjoy stories and nursery rhymes. Active play may include parachute fun, exploring instruments, and more.

Join us as we come together to share in our love for snuggles with finger play, stories, songs and rhymes, all designed with your little one's development in mind!

Fun for Little OnesNewborn to 24 months. Babies and toddlers are curious about the world. This is a program designed just for them. A variety of experiences led by the children’s interests will encourage them to see, touch and explore what is around them. Our educators will encourage curiosity and wonder and create opportunities for children to learn more about their ideas and their environment. Our Family Support Coordinator will visit from time to time to help answer your questions about this fascinating (and sometimes exhausting) stage of development.

Enjoying Your Toddler - 18 to 30 months. This is a great way to introduce your child to a play space filled with crafts and songs, while having lots of fun with other parents and children.

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.

Shake, Rattle & Roll - 2.5 to 5 years. Come and join us for some music, movement and songs! If your child is a mover and groover, then this action-packed program is for you! We’ll explore gross motor activities and a circle time filled with songs, sensory and more!

Time Together - 2.5 to 5 years. Spend some special time with your little one as you connect over crafts, free-play and songs while having lots of fun with other parents and children in your community!
