Licensed Home Child Care Notice

CROW is committed to supporting the goal of the Child Care and Early Years Act in building a child care and early years system that better supports parents and gives children the best possible start in life.  We believe that educators are partners in learning with children. We believe that knowledge is socially constructed through relationships with others. With this view, educators build strong trusting relationships with the children, and their families, and learn alongside them.  If you share this view, consider joining CROW!  We have a high demand for child care and need  Home Child Care Providers in Almonte, Lanark Village, Perth, Montague and surrounding areas.  Click here to fill out our online application or call 613-283-0095 for more information.    

EarlyON Child and Family Centre

As we transition from Ontario Early Years Centre (OEYC) to EarlyON Child and Family Centre:  

Beginning January 1, 2018 Ontario Early Years Centre  transitioned to Early ON Child and Family Centre. (For more information on the new EarlyON initiative follow this link )

Through this transition we have updated our website.  You will see a new look but the format remains the same.  We have also added a new EarlyON Facebook page which we would ask you to follow.    We are still maintaining our CROW Facebook page as we did not want to lose any of our followers.  

We have also changed our greeting when you telephone the Centre.  When you call you will hear “Good morning/good afternoon Children’s Resources on Wheels” but do not be alarmed when you hear “Thank you for calling EarlyON Child and Family Centre”.  You did not call the wrong number, it is still us!

At the end of January we introduced Saturday play dates.  Our EarlyON playgroup facilitators will be making appearances at some of your local community events and/or hosting other fun events.  Look for them on our Facebook pages, in the monthly newsletter an on our website under the Calendar or in our News section of the website.

EarlyON is a combination of four programs – Ontario Early Years Centre; Parenting and Family Literacy Centres; Child Care Resource Centres; and Better Beginnings, Better Futures.  These programs were reorganized so you can get the same services at any EarlyON Child and Family Centres in Ontario, and also find programs tailored to your community.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this transition.
