During the month of June, the Peel District School Board is working with the Region of Peel to transition eight Child and Family Learning Centres (CFLC) and re-open as EarlyON Child and Family Centres. EarlyON centre providers will provide free, drop-in programs for children and their families/caregivers who have children up to the age of six years old. Families will continue to be welcomed by qualified early years' professionals who can provide support, advice, and helpful resources.
Below are the locations where the CFLC sites will be transitioned to new EarlyON service providers:

CFLC staff will be working closely with the Peel board, Region of Peel and the EarlyON providers to ensure a smooth transition for affected families when the EarlyON centre opens. Thank you to all Child and Family Learning Centre staff who have worked diligently to support families and children, especially during these unprecedented times and through this transition.
Below is some important information for you as your family plans its transition to the EarlyON Centre:
- Families are free to visit the centres as many times per week as they choose and can stay for any length of time within the centre's hours.
- The hours of operation may not be the same as the previous centre you attended. EarlyON providers are working hard to find out which days and times work best for you.
- Every child must be accompanied by an adult who stays at the centre for the duration of the visit. Parents and caregivers can bring more than one child.
- Please note that EarlyON centres are not childcare programs.
The Peel District School Board is a proud partner with the Region of Peel to support parents and caregivers and continue to provide opportunities to learn together.
