Children's services

Child care

Do you have a child 0 to 12 years old? Tell us about your child care needs and experiences and help shape child care services in Ottawa. Take the survey by December 16 and you could win one of two iPads!

Find the right child care for your family and learn about other helpful resources for parents.

Early learning

Province of Ontario and EarlyON logos

Ontario combined their programs for children ages 0 to 6 into one system. This way, you can get the same services at any EarlyON centre in Ontario and the best fit for your community.
