We will be starting a new program called Bumps and Brunch for pregnant parents to attend on Thursdays at 11am. We are really excited to have Miranda Johnston from CSBD joining us for a conversation about Infant development on Thursday, June 3rd at 6:30pm.

This month at our Busy Babies program we are featuring a four week Infant Massage Program. At our Algonquin Inodewiziwin Cultural Circle this month we are happy to have Special Guests: David Stanger and Sebastien Beaudoin for Drumming and Storytelling on Saturday, June 5th at 10am.

For more details on all our programs, please visit our website calendar.

Families can still receive learning kits if their unable to make the zoom program. With our no zoom no problem policy we just require them to send us pictures of their experience by emailing them to We are currently offering contactless deliveries and curbside pick-up.

We are hoping to hear more about reopening in-person programming once the stay at home order is lifted.

Algonquin Inòdewiziwin Child and Family Centre Program Calendar

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.

The Anishinaabe Baptiste Community Organization and the Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin First 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.
