What is FamilyInfo.ca?
- FamilyInfo.ca is a web portal for parents, caregivers and service providers that links information on programs, services and resources in the London and Middlesex area for children.
- FamilyInfo.ca is not intended to reproduce or duplicate anything that already exists. It is a launching point to other sites that contain early years centred information.
Where did FamilyInfo.ca come from?
- The idea for the web portal came from the former early years resource action committee that many community organizations were involved with.
- Since then, a community group of various organizations stepped forward to turn the idea into reality, pulling together the integral components from various community organizations in London and Middlesex.
Why do we need FamilyInfo.ca?
- FamilyInfo.ca is centred on the early years.
- It helps parents, caregivers and professionals find the information they are looking for in an easy to use, friendly environment.
- The focus is on programs and services that are available. It is the first step in leading people through the process of finding the information they need.
Who will maintain the web portal?
- The Coordinating committee will be monitoring the site on an ongoing basis.
- The Data Analysis Coordinators for the Ontario Early Years Centres, through their mandate with the ministry, will update the data.
- In addition, Investing in Children will donate some administrative and technical supports.
- The committee will continue to serve as a community collaborative group.
- The committee will welcome anyone’s contribution of information, time and financial support.
The Benefits of FamilyInfo.ca:
