Children’s Resources on Wheels (CROW) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and strengthening child care, family life, child development and community links in Lanark County.  In 2018, CROW celebrated 30 years of service supporting children and families throughout Lanark County.  The CROW Board provides governance for both the EarlyOn Child and Family Centre and Licensed Home Child Care.

Children’s Resources on Wheels (CROW) recognizes children are capable and curious and delivers programs and services that value and build on their strengths and abilities. CROW is guided by How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years as a professional learning resource guide for Educators to support pedagogy and curriculum/program development in our early learning programs. This aligns with the Ministry of Education’s Policy Statement on programming and pedagogy.  At CROW we view children and families as community members with valuable ideas and perspectives.

CROW is committed to supporting the goal of the Child Care and Early Years Act in building a child care and early year’s system that better supports parents and gives children the best possible start in life. We are committed to ensure that the provisions set out in the Act will strengthen compliance, health and safety in our child care settings as well as help parents make informed choices about their options. The individual needs of the child are to be considered at all times throughout the day.

Our Board meets monthly (excluding July and December) and makes decisions using a formal consensus model.  Since our meetings are held during the day, CROW offers child care for those needing it.
