WRFN provides general information to self-advocates and families of children with special needs.

Early ON Update June 2023

We invite your family to drop in to one of our EarlyON locations throughout Waterloo Region. We also offer specialty and online programs that require pre-registration. Check our KEyON calendars for more information.


Please read our EarlyON Experience page before each visit to learn about updated health and safety expectations and other information to help you plan for your visit.


To view our monthly program calendars by site, or to register for specialty programs, login to your KEyON account and select the EarlyON location of your choice.




The YMCA of Three Rivers (Lead Agency for EarlyON | Waterloo Region) aims to uphold a high standard for child protection and child safety at all of our locations. This includes verifying the identity of the adults who are entering our spaces. Effective immediately, all adults entering EarlyON Child and Family Centres who are not known to the EarlyON professional at point of entry will be asked to provide government issue photo ID in order to attend EarlyON, in addition to signing into the EarlyON with their KEyON account.


Please ensure that each adult entering EarlyON has their own KEyON account. KEyON accounts can still be created onsite at EarlyON locations or by participants offsite. Government issue photo ID will be required to obtain a KEyON key tag moving forward, and new KEyON key tags will need to be picked up in-person at EarlyON locations and will no longer be mailed.

Inclement Weather Policy:


EarlyON at Linear Park is outdoor registered programming. In the event of hail, heavy rain, lightning, a tornado, severe thunderstorm or wind chill, EarlyON locations will not operate. 


To support with providing a clear understanding of our policy and practices, if The Weather Network indicates at 8:00am on the day of the outdoor program that there is a 60% or higher chance of rain for the time of the program (morning, afternoon, evening), the program will be cancelled. Families will be notified of the cancellation via a phone call and if notifications are turned on in KEyON, the family will receive a cancellation email from KEyON.  All updates about unexpected cancellations will be posted on our social media pages.



Accessing Your KEyON Account


Have trouble with your login information or need help with registration?


Call us at 519-741-8585 ext. 3001 or send us an email.


All adults are required to have their own KEyON account. Please do not create more than one KEyON account. If you create multiple accounts for the same adult, challenges in registration and attendance are expected.
