About ROCK


Ontario Early Years

The Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK) is the Ontario Early Years Centre (OEYC) for the Burlington Community. All of our Ontario Early Years Programs are offered free of charge.

Ontario Early Years Centres are places where parents and caregivers can:

  • take part with their children in a range of programs and activities
  • get answers to questions
  • get information about programs and services that are available for young children
  • talk to early years professionals, as well as other parents and caregivers in the community.
Next Registration for our Early Learning Programs opens December 11, 2017

Mark your calendar! Registration for Infant Massage, Baby Picassos, Baby Explorers, Toddler VanGogh and Mini Monet will open on Monday, December 11 for programs starting in January 2018.

OEYC Programs

Inclement Weather
There will be times when weather and road conditions will require us to close our centres.

Our ROCK/OEYC Centres will close if the Halton District School Board closes the schools due to weather conditions.

If the schools are open, but transportation is cancelled, our Mobile program will also be cancelled. The decision to open or to close all other sites will be made by our Management team by 7:00 a.m.

At all times, make safety your first priority when considering your attendance at program. Please stay within your comfort zone when driving and weather conditions are concerned.

If you are unsure if a program is running, please check our Facebook page or call the centre to inquire.

Parents will not be reimbursed for cancellations due to weather conditions.
