Open daily from 1 to 4 pm – For Outreach Programming in North Hastings please go to the NHCS Calendar at www.nhcs.ca/calendar

The Anishinaabe Baptiste Community Organization and the Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin Nation Community have partnered with North Hastings Children’s Services to administer the Ministry of Education EarlyON program through the Journey Together funding with Hastings County. This program is funded by the Government of Canada and the province of Ontario.

EarlyON centres offer free drop-in programs for caregivers and children from birth to 6 years old. At this Child and Family Centre both indigenous and non-indigenous parents and caregivers have access to high quality indigenous services that will support them in their role as their children’s first teachers, enhance their well-being and enrich their knowledge about early learning and development. In particular, children and parents will both learn the Algonquin language, history and culture.
