Elmira Family Centre 

Welcome to the Elmira Family Centre!

We are part of a hub where parents can access programs and services that support their child's healthy development.

Open House Thursday, November 30!

Please join us between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Elmira Family Centre for a fun afternoon of literacy games. Explore the space, meet program staff, and share your thoughts for future program ideas.

The centre will soon be one of the new EarlyOn Child and Family Centres in Ontario. Learn more about EarlyOn Child and Family Centres
