Early ON Child and Family Centres

EarlyOn Child and Family Centres

In the City and County of Peterborough Child & Family programs are offered by the Peterborough Child & Family Centre (formerly Peterborough Family Resource Centre) and by the Old Millbrook School Family Centre. Contact the program directly for hours and registration.

EarlyON Child & Family Centres provide a wide range of high quality services for children ages 0 - 6 years and their parents and caregivers that help strengthen parenting skills, support parent education and foster healthy child development.  These services are free of charge and offer safe and welcoming spaces and programs to all families, with qualified professionals.
