Update on Ontario Early Years Centres

Regional Council received an update on the services and support that Ontario Early Years Centres (OEYC’s) provide to children and families in Peel. OEYCs in Peel provide universal and specialized programs based on the needs of families in local communities. Since their inception in 2002, Ontario Early Years Centres have supported thousands of children and families through a wide range of early years programs and services and as such, are proving to be a valuable component of a comprehensive “early years” system.
