STAY AND PLAY
Autism Ontario, in partnership with the Ontario Early Years Centre, York North, are excited to offer a stay and play program for children under the age of 6. Children and parents can share in a variety of early learning activities available to enrich language and social skills. The program is also a great way to connect with other families who have younger children and share resources and suggestions. The OEYC invites parents to explore their resources and approach the Early Learning Educators with any questions you may have.
As part of Autism Awareness Month, our Family Support Coordinator, Jamie Read, will be on site to chat with parents and answer any questions that you might have.
NOTE: Supervision of children/youth at this Social Learning Opportunity is the sole responsibility of parents/guardians and caregivers; childcare will not be provided.

1.) Do I need to print out ticket or email confirmations to attend this event?
For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise. When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk. You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you. That's all.
2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?
No, not needed. Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.
3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?
Almost all of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter. If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.
4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?
No. While membership does provide other great opportunities, events provided through Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme are open to all families of children with ASD, under the age of 18, who reside in Ontario.
