Ontario Early Years Centres

The Ontario Early Years Centres located all across Toronto is a free government-run program offering daily Mom and Baby Programs and activities.

All drop-in programs, workshops, and classes are FREE for everyone.

Toronto community Centres: Parent and Baby programs

The community centres in Toronto offer drop-in programs for babies and toddlers such as Indoor Play with Caregivers (1-5yrs), a 13 weeks program, free, drop in.

In addition, the centres offer programs for babies starting at 6 months such as Making Music with Caregivers (6-18 months). It’s not free, however, the cost is only $41 for 9 weeks, and will probably fit into most families’ budgets.

Keep in mind that you need to pre-register for this program in advance (a few months before). Their site is not very user-friendly. The best thing to do is to go to your nearest centre and register. You will get your family number to access the online registration. You can also ask in person about the programs they are offering and the schedule for the next session.
