The Guelph Early Years Centre offers a variety of registered programs to the community. These programs are provided free of charge. Each child may participate once in each program. There is a maximum of 3 children per adult for registered programs. Because space is limited and in high demand, please plan to attend all classes of the session for which you register.
TO REGISTER: Come to the Ontario Early Years Centre Stone Road Mall Site or call 519-821-6638, option 3. Registration begins at 9:15am. Register early as programs fill quickly. Registration begins the second Tuesday of the month prior to the month the program starts.
This program aims to provide a deep connection between you and your baby. It helps you to understand your baby and respond with love and respectful listening. You and your child will love the special time together! There is a $5 fee for materials and please bring a yoga mat or blanket and a towel. For some sessions, siblings may be accommodated.
