A Fun Space to Share and Play Fair
What is EarlyON?
EarlyON Child and Family Centre is a Ministry of Education initiative with the mission of enhancing the quality of early education for all families of Ontario. Services include free, high-quality programs for families and children from birth to 6 years old.
About Our Indoor and Outdoor Playgroups
City View Centre offers EarlyON parent and tot playgroups throughout the communities of Nepean and Richmond. Participation is on a drop-in basis and is free of charge for residents, thanks to the financial support of the City of Ottawa and the Ministry of Education.
Playgroups are facilitated by EarlyON accredited educators with activities for children, including reading, storytelling, singalongs, and games— indoors and outdoors.
For parents, playgroups can provide advice from early childhood development professionals, help you learn about other community programs and share experiences with other parents.
Playgroups are on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of 30 participants per playgroup (including adults and children). One adult may accompany up to 5 children, 0 to 6 years of age.
