About EarlyON

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 EarlyON - to make sure that children in Ontario are ready to learn by the time they start Grade One. EarlyON 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.
