Ontario Early Years Centres


Ontario Early Years Centres

Ontario Early Years Centres offer parents, caregivers, children and their families a warm and friendly spot to meet and share with one another.

You and your children have the opportunity to explore different toys, to develop social skills, and to take part in special events. You have a chance to relax, play with your child, enjoy friendly chats over coffee or tea, and make use of many parent resources.

In order to protect the safety and well being of children in our programs, Muskoka Family Focus and Children Place Programs respect and support the permissible adult to child ratios for caregivers as dictated by the Early Years and Child Care Act.

Please follow your child around the room. If you must leave an area without your child, please ask another adult to supervise your child. Assist your child in all areas of the program and have fun playing together.

Our Volunteer Program

The Volunteer Program at Muskoka Family Focus & Children's Place is a great way for adults and older youth to give back to the community as a volunteer driver, lunch maker, toy cleaner or baby holder.

Our Volunteer Drivers are fully screened volunteers who transport families to the various Ontario Early Years Centres, as well as Great Beginnings and Growing Up programs throughout Muskoka. If volunteers are not available a taxi may be provided.

For more information, please visit Volunteer Program.

Our lunch volunteers have created a cookbook with 150 delicious soup recipes.  Click here to find out how to get your copy!
