The Oxford Early Learning Association (OELA) is committed to promoting and supporting quality programs and services for our youngest citizens and their families. Comprised of community partners, the OELA has collaborated to present a variety of opportunities for early learning professionals to engage in reflective conversations and networking opportunities as well as to strengthen their knowledge and skills to promote lifelong learning.
Welcome to Oxford Ontario Early Years
Literacy can happen anywhere! When we talk, read, sing and play with young children, we are building important literacy skills. Early literacy is everything a child knows about reading before they know how to read and write. The Early Literacy Specialist's role is to support, strengthen, monitor and promote early literacy and language development in the community.
Programs for Families
Oxford Ontario Early Years Centres are places where children aged 0-6 and their families can come together to learn, connect, experience and PLAY! There are a variety of programs to explore; all of them enriched by the Ontario Early Learning Framework and Ontario's pedagogy "How Does Learning Happen?". OEY's also provide support and resources on child related concerns in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
