Norwood Site News – Announcing… the Peterborough Family Resource Centre is now an Early ON site!

Announcing… the Peterborough Family Resource Centre  is now an Early ON site!

Early ON sites are a new provincial initiative designed to combine four previous programs – Ontario Early Years Centres; Parenting and Family Literacy Centres; Child Care Resource Centres; and Better Beginnings, Better Futures – to better serve families with young children. As the Peterborough Family Resource Centre has been an Ontario Early Years Centre for almost 20 years, you can expect that we will continue to be a welcoming place for you and your children! Our programs – including both registered and drop-in parent child programs, our Toy Lending Library, and our parenting workshops – will continue to be offered in all our existing Family Hubs in the County and City of Peterborough.

We are excited to share an update of our location and services at our Norwood site.

You may know that Norwood District High School will be undergoing a renovation beginning in March. Many thanks to Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, and the school principal Mary Lou Steinman, who have worked with us to ensure we remain part of the school community during the construction. Our new location in the school will be room 150 for the foreseeable future.

If you are a family coming to the site, what does this mean for you?

Leanne and Susan will continue to be the team working in Norwood. They will assist you in finding your way to the room, finding lockers and locating bathrooms. You will be entering through an outside door by the lecture hall, there will be a sign in the parking lot directing you to the designated entryway of the school. You may continue to park in the staff/student parking lot.
