Catholic School Board Receives $5.5 million for New Childcare Centres and EarlyOn Child and Family Centres
The London District Catholic School Board will receive $5.5 million from the Ministry of Education to add two Childcare Centres and two EarlyON Child and Family Centres to existing schools in London, St. Thomas and Aylmer.
In London, a Childcare Centre and an EarlyON Child and Family Centre will be added to St. Anne Catholic Elementary School (near Huron Street and Highbury Avenue).
In St. Thomas, an EarlyON Child and Family Centre will be added to Monsignor Morrison Catholic Elementary School.
In Aylmer, a Childcare Centre will be added to Assumption Catholic Elementary School.
An EarlyON Child and Family Centre offers free, safe, and engaging high-quality drop-in spaces for children up to six years old and their parents, and caring adults. They offer a range of services and resources where parents can learn, play with their child, meet other people and get advice from early childhood professionals.
Childcare Centres attached to schools are licensed childcare centres for infants and toddlers, as well as pre-school and school-aged children. They include nursery schools, full-day care, extended hours care, and before- and after-school programs.
