As a new parent it may be difficult to know where to go or what to do with your baby or child. And the pandemic has made it even more difficult as many services have been closed or put on hold.
Good news – EarlyON Centres have been given the go ahead to offer in person indoor and outdoor programing. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many EarlyON Centres have been offering their programs virtually. Now you can visit some of the centres in person!
