Telephone support for parents with children up to age six

Family with young child on the phone

Parenting can be challenging at the best of times, but the normal stresses of coordinating tasks and responsibilities are even more difficult with schools closed and parents attempting to juggle child care with changing job requirements and physical distancing due to COVID-19.

Thanks to a new collaboration between York Region Early Intervention Services and agencies providing EarlyON child and family programs and services in York Region, parents can now speak with an early years professional over the phone about suggestions and strategies to help them with things like:

  • Tips for creating routines for mealtime, bedtime, independent play and more
  • Helping you to support the growth and development of your child
  • Using play activities to support your child’s learning
  • Completing forms or referrals for other community services
  • Responding to challenging behaviours

Parents will also have the opportunity to learn about other resources to support families with young children. 

Parents who would like to connect with a York Region EarlyON Community Program Coordinator can send an email to EarlyON@york.ca
