CDI operates Parkdale-High Park EarlyON Child and Family Centre (CFC) and welcomes families with a range of services and resources. At our EarlyON CFC, parents, caregivers, and children can engage in fun activities, get advice from professionals trained in early childhood development and connect with others in the community.
