EarlyON Child and Family Centre logo

The City invites interested organizations to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to operate Indigenous EarlyON Child and Family Centres and Indigenous Cultural Programs for Children and Families. Applications are due April 16, 2018.


The City and its community partners are planning for EarlyON Child and Family Centres throughout Toronto. On January 1st, 2018, the Province of Ontario transferred planning and administration responsibility for four types of programs for children (newborn to 6) and their parents/caregivers to municipalities. These programs have been integrated and are being delivered under the common identity of EarlyON Child and Family Centres.

Branding Announcement

On October 24th, 2017, the Ministry of Education put out a news release announcing the new name and branding for the four programs being integrated. These centres are now called EarlyON Child and Family Centres.
