The Children’s Program is a family literacy centre dedicated to providing children with a safe place where they can play, learn, and grow. Our program is designed to promote literacy while encouraging creativity and self-expression.
The Children’s Program provides free, onsite, part-time childcare for parents attending programs at Heartwood House, including ALSO‘s programs.
The program curriculum is literacy and language enriched, and develops emergent literacy skills to give children a better start in school.
The Children’s Program is provided by qualified early-childhood educators, assisted by trained volunteers. There is a high adult-to-child ratio.
Who can join us?
- children 6 months to 6 years old
- parents who are attending a Heartwood House Program
- This is a service mainly for families on Ontario Works and low-income families
