Early Years

Parenting toddlers and young children can be hard work! Our Early Years program is a fun and social, play-based learning environment where children aged 0-6 years old can enjoy engaging activities and parents can connect. The Early Years program is offered free of charge on a drop-in basis Monday to Friday from 9 am to 12 pm. The program occurs at different sites around Oliver.
