As the designated Best Start Aboriginal HUB of the City of Windsor, Ska:na FLC is excited to continue to grow in service to our neighbourhoods with:

Ontario Early Years Centres are places where parents and caregivers can:

  • talk to early years professionals, as well as other parents and caregivers in the community.

Visit the official website where you can find answers to frequently asked questions about Ontario Early Years Centres. It also features a library of information about the first six years of your child's life.

About Ontario's Best Start

We want the best for Ontario's babies and children. That means making sure they get the best possible start in life. That's the goal of Best Start - to make sure that children in Ontario are ready to learn by the time they start Grade One. Best Start focuses on:

  • Early learning and child care services.
  • Healthy development during a child's first years.

It consists of a range of services to support families with children from their birth through to Grade One. These services include:

Healthy Babies Healthy Children - a program that supports the healthy growth and development of children from before birth up to age six

  • Infant hearing program.
  • Speech and language therapy for children who need extra help.
  • More opportunities for high quality, affordable early learning and child care.
  • Services for children who are blind or have low vision.

We are working with our community partners - school boards, public health units, municipalities and child care and children's services providers - to make sure that more children and parents can access a seamless network of early learning and development services and supports right in their own communities.
