The City of Ottawa is planning for the new Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres (OEYCFCs) and wants to hear from parents, grandparents and caregivers of children six years of age and younger.
In 2018, all child and family programs funded by the Province will become part of one unified system of services and supports for children ages 0 to 6 and their families. These will be called Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres (OEYCFCs). (link is external)
These new centres will offer programs and services for children, from newborn to six-year-olds, and their caregivers including playgroups, information workshops for parents, and referrals to specialized services.
Participate in the planning for the OEYCFCs by registering to attend a consultation.
