Ontario Early Years Centre

Ontario Early Years Centres are intended to prepare children for lifelong learning, health and well-being. The Centres are meant for all Ontario families.

E3 Community Services is the lead agency for the Ontario Early Years Centre of Simcoe Grey. The lead site is in Collingwood with a satellite in Alliston. Both centres provide early learning activities for children, parent education, literacy based activities, referrals to community resources, nutrition information, pre and post natal resources and outreach services to smaller communities in Simcoe Grey, within a warm and welcoming environment. The centres offer regular stay and play hours where families can take an active role in their children’s learning, as well as workshops for adults and children. Any adult caring for children from birth to six years of age is welcome to enjoy the centres.
