The Learning Hub

The Learning Hub was formerly known as the Resource Library. It opened as the Professional Resource Centre for Child Care in 1994 on King George Road and became part of the OEYC: Brant in 2002. With the name change from OEYC to EarlyON, the Resource Library is now known as The Learning Hub.

 Due to COVID 19 we have a few new policies in place to ensure a safe borrowing experience:
