Family Centres

Friday, December 20, 2019

Family Centres bring together parents, families, service providers, neighbours and friends to connect, play, and make the ordinary and extraordinary experiences of raising children and youth just a little bit easier.

Family Centres act as one door to many opportunities, Monday through Saturday, at the Family Centre, in the neighborhood, and across the city.

At Family Centres, children, youth, and families can:

  • Learn and play together, meet neighbours, and make new friends
  • Access a range of free or low-cost activities, events and programs
  • Connect to a variety of important community services and resources for parenting and family life
  • Get the support they need to thrive. Together.

Because the more we get together, the happier, healthier, more confident and connected our entire community will be.

The Family Centre is Your Connection to:

  • parenting & early learning
  • early childhood education
  • public health and wellness
  • recreation, sports and leisure
  • youth services
  • referral, resources, information, and awareness

Many individuals and agencies work together to bring the services, information and resources you need - to you!

Of the many Family Centres across the city, London Children’s Connection is the lead agency for the Fanshawe, Westmount, and White Oaks Family Centres.
