About Us

For over 25 years, we have been a valued multi-service agency and a registered charity promoting community values and well-being for the East York East Toronto neighborhood. 

We perform a wide spectrum of relevant community work. Every year, thousands of children and adults attend our child and family drop-ins, parenting education programs, child care centers, prenatal nutrition, and education programs. Families and individuals turn to us for support to find and maintain housing, access food, and other essentials of life. By working in close collaboration with community partners, participants, clients, volunteers, and members, we are able to quickly identify emerging community needs and respond with new, innovative, and meaningful programs to fill the gaps.

EYET operates four early learning centres for infant, toddler, pre-school, and kindergarten-age children. Our child care centres provide a caring and creative environment where your children can experience growth physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually.

Annie’s Place, Tom’s Place, Crescent Town School and Crescent Town Centre provide a happy, relaxed environment that fosters self-confidence, self-respect, and a feeling of security. At EYET, we accept every child for who they are – their strengths and challenges – and respect their individuality.

We complement the family’s home experience by working in partnership with parents and caregivers to ensure the best possible outcomes for them. We complement the family’s home experience by working in partnership with parents and caregivers to ensure the best possible outcomes for their children. We value and respect parents’ primary role as experts – their knowledge, skills, and insights. We model caring and respect for others and promote an inclusive and diverse environment. EYET utilizes an emergent curriculum approach to program planning.
