Entrance: Free Accessibility: Wheelchair accessible. I would recommend leaving strollers behind if possible. There is designated stroller parking in the hallway, but strollers aren’t permitted in the actual centres. Food: You may bring your own snacks. There are designated snack tables for eating and sinks for washing up. Note: The EYFCs are nut free. Washrooms: Washrooms and change tables available at each location.
The Regina Early Years Family Centres are playspaces that are free, universally accessible and open to public use. They are beautiful, thoughtfully designed and well-maintained spaces to explore with children ages 6 and under. The REYFRCs host both drop-in play sessions and wonderful programming. All programs are free unless otherwise specified. They are staffed with Early Childhood Educators and host visits from Public Health Nurses, Speech Language Pathologists, Triple P Practitioners (positive parenting experts), and more. The Early Years Family Centres are an amazing resource to have in our city. For more information, visit the Regina Children's Initiative website at www.reginakids.ca/regina-childrens-initiative. Note: The Regina Early Years Family Resource Centres are currently closed during the COVID-19 pandemic but are still offering both virtual and in-person programming. Please consult the calendar (below) for details. We are proud of all the work that the Regina Early Years Family Resource Centre has done to support the community during the COVID-19 pandemic and look forward to seeing their new location soon.

Regina and these playspaces are situated on Treaty 4 territory, the original lands of the Cree, Ojibwe, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakota, Lakota, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. Play is a significant part of culture and identity. Provided by the Government of Saskatchewan and offered by the University of Regina, there is a Cree language learning resource available under "Schools and play." Visitors are encouraged to visit the Anti-Racism and Play webpage.
