Transitioning into parenthood can be isolating and difficult at the best of times. Reinforcement and relief from family and friends is often expected and can be an opportunity for reprieve sleep deprivation, but restrictions have made family and in-home support difficult. That’s where EarlyON comes in.
EarlyON program facilitators know from experience that being a great parent takes time and practice and that parents can learn from being around other parents. EarlyON centres offer free, high quality programs for families and children from birth to age six. Parents can get advice from professionals trained in early childhood development, find out about family services in the community, and connect with other families with young children.
