Imagine a place where community groups and organizations work cooperatively to help children and families learn, share, and connect with others. The Family Centre is a very special place that does all that and more. It provides a welcoming, safe environment that focuses on the positive and helps build the strengths, wellness, and resiliency of children, youth, and families in our community.

The Family Centre is a bright and colourful facility owned and operated by Family and Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region. It is situated close to the Courtland Shelly community in Kitchener.

*Parents are required to remain onsite during the Get Ready for SchoolTM program.

Please note: Registration for the 2019 program begins November 1, 2018, at the site you wish your child to attend.
