ACSA EarlyON


Welcome to the Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA)’s Child and Family Centre.  Our programs are for families, caregivers, and children 0-6 years of age and offers various fun and play based activities.  We also have workshops, referrals and parenting support services for families.  Our hours of operation includes afternoon, evening and Saturdays, and mornings at our Satellite locations.  Free parking is available at all locations.

Through socialization we wish to combat isolation.

There are many factors influencing family difficulties in this day and age — our mission is to provide an effective variety of services for families to assist in defining and achieving their own success.

Through socialization we wish to combat isolation - play based programs for children assist in language development for children and family members who attend the programs, and specific school readiness programs further opportunities for success through strengthening learning opportunities.

Overall, we believe the level of program attendance and participation is both a testament to the local need for such programs and to ACSA's ability to welcome and engage children and families in safe, pro social services.

Cooking Healthy Together     

In this program, parents and caregivers in the community participate in cooking classes to learn more about low-cost cooking, food safety, multiethnic cooking, effective grocery shopping, nutrition and Canada's Food Guide. ACSA believes that knowledge is the beginning step to facilitate healthy growth and development. This program empowers parents and caregivers by providing effective information aimed at keeping themselves, and their family healthy.

Teen Mothers program

In partnership with ACSA, YWCA is offering a drop in program for young women.  YWCA Toronto offers a free support program in Scarborough for mothers 14 to 22 years of age. In the Teen Mothers' program, we offer opportunities to build positive parenting skills and gain access to resources that support mothers on their parenting journey.

This program initially began targeting young mothers, focusing on single women with babies. The level of participation in this group greatly shapes the programming and workshops facilitated to the group participants. Overall, the teen mothers program has regular group meetings and check ins with the program worker and childcare staff, along with workshops on positive parenting, budgeting, nutrition, career guidance, free meals, and snacks.

For more information please contact Amy Brooks, Program Worker at YWCA 416-266-1232 X30.
