Early On

Parent/Caregiver Child Care and Early Years Survey

We want to hear from you about your child care and early years program and services experiences!

The County of Middlesex is creating a Child Care and Early Years Plan that will outline how we support families for the next 4 years.

Your feedback will help us better understand the needs, strengths, priorities, and desired outcomes for the early years and child care system, and will help us put together a plan that addresses the changing needs of families in the County of Middlesex.

As part of our engagement process we will also be consulting with child care and early years providers.

Feedback collected through the Parent/Caregiver Child Care and Early Years Survey and the input from providers will be used to inform the development of our Child Care and Early Years Plan.

Help us plan for child care and early year’s programs and services across the County of Middlesex.

Click here to complete the survey.

Upon completion of the survey, you can enter your name into a random draw for a chance to win one of three $50.00 gift cards to Walmart, Foodland or Superstore/Loblaw’s.

If you have any questions about the survey please feel free to contact Jennifer Kirkham at jenkirkham02@gmail.com.

The survey is available until September 30th, 2018.

Pop Up Play 

Pop up Play! is a mobile “loose parts” playground and a space for kids to rediscover creative and imaginative play!

These playgrounds use a variety of materials and loose parts such as tires, tape, rope, sticks, stones, cardboard and fabric that children are free to use to build, demolish, create and change as they desire.

Onsite play facilitators are there to inspire play and keep the playground safe, but not directly supervise the children. Parents or caregivers must be present – this is not a drop-off program. Everyone is welcome!
