A Safe Return to Our EarlyON Programs

Monday, December 12, 2022

We continue to work with the guidance and support of our local Medical Officer of Health and the Ministry of Education to develop enhanced policies, procedures and processes that will ensure children and families can return to programs in a manner that maximizes everyone’s health and wellbeing, and minimizes risks. 

Please note the details below have been updated effective September 1, 2022.

Here is what you need to know about participating in our in-person EarlyON programs:

  • Prior to arrival for this in-person program, participants must screen themselves, their child, and any other individuals who will attend, for symptoms of COVID-19 using the provincial school and child care screening tool at:

  • We ask that you do not bring food of any kind with you into the Family Centre. You are welcome to bring nut-free snacks to programs in the community only. 
  • When you attend an EarlyON program, you enter an area where photography, audio, and video recording may occur. By participating in the program, you authorize EarlyON staff and the City of London to use any pictures taken for print and/or digital purposes. If you do not wish to be photographed/videoed, please advise staff immediately.

The safety, health and well-being of children and peace of mind for parents are our top priorities.
