Early ON Child & Family Centres


Let’s start learning right now.

From infancy to six years old, children can get a head start in learning through a variety of engaging and educational opportunities at DSBN’s five EarlyON Child & Family Centres.

DSBN’s EarlyON Child & Family Centres are bright, fun places that offer games, books, music and toys for parents and children to experience together. Each Centre is staffed by an Early Childhood Educator who further supports children’s learning through story and music time activities. The EarlyON Centre also features a lending library with multilingual stories and parenting books.
