EarlyON-Line Programs

Chatham-Kent EarlyON-Line virtual programs will continue to offer families a way to stay connected and engage through interactive on-line videos and programs offered in French and English.

EarlyON-In Person Programs

EarlyON is excited to announce that starting in September we will begin a soft launch of in-person and outdoor programming (with limited spaces - approximately 5 family limit).

All in-person programs will require pre-registration and pre-screening.

Stayed tuned, as we continue to consult with Public Health on the safe re-opening of in-centre programs.
