22 Dec The same great support from Simcoe Community Services for children, families and caregivers in 2018
In February 2017, the Ontario government announced the transformation of the delivery of early year’s programs for children and families. Starting in January 2018, Ontario Early Years Centres, Parenting and Family Literacy Centres, Child Care Resource Centres and Better Beginnings, Better Futures centres will collectively be known as EarlyON Child and Family Centres. These EarlyON Centres will be open to all families across Ontario, and provide support, parenting programs, personal connections and a network of resources as well as play and inquiry based programs for young children.
Satellite Child and Family Programs currently in schools will be relocated to the community as our School Boards and community partners address the Province’s “School’s First” approach to include EarlyON Child and Family Centres in schools.
In Simcoe County, Simcoe Community Services will continue to deliver the same quality of services you have been receiving.
French Language Services for EarlyON Child and Family Programs will now be delivered through La Clé across Simcoe County.
Simcoe Community Services is excited about this transformation for families with children age 0 to 6 as we know that The Early Years Matter! If you have any questions about this transformation, please contact us through the EarlyOn Child and Family Centre page here at www.simcoecommunityservices.ca.
