Niagara’s newest EarlyON Child and Family Centre is opening in the Seaway Mall, Welland. Saturday, Sept. 15 is the carnival-themed kick-off, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The family-friendly event will include educational games, activities, an official ribbon cutting ceremony, and more. Popular mascots Dunkin from the River Lions, Bones from the Niagara Ice Dogs, Chase from Paw Patrol, Benji the Blue Box and Bob from Minions will all be in attendance.
The new facility features play areas and eco-friendly toys, is fully accessible, and is staffed with qualified professionals. All EarlyON Centres offer drop-in programs that are open to all Niagara residents and completely free of charge.
Mike Belcastro, President of Seaway Mall, says, “The creation of a safe place for families to access games and resources together is a great addition to our Seaway family.”
