Abbotsford Early Years

Investing in beginnings, growing positive futures

Abbotsford Early Years is designed to connect parents, caregivers and service providers in Abbotsford with tools and resources to support families of young children.

We provide information on parenting, early childhood resources, referrals, and developmental screening. Abbotsford Early Years also offers numerous programs, including StrongStart, drop-ins and parenting supports.

The Early Years Centre is located at the Sweeney Neighbourhood Centre at 33355 Bevan Avenue, Abbotsford. Please visit the Centre, this website, or our Facebook page for the current schedule.

The Abbotsford Early Years Centre is open daily, to help connect parents and caregivers to early years resources.


Hello Abbotsford, This is a reminder that on Thursdays ALL our StrogStart sessions will be held in a close-by park location. On Nature Thursdays, we invite you to build your friendship with nature by exploring the many gifts and riches found in multiple parks around Abbotsford. Together we will discover different habitats and use all our senses when enjoying nature as we walk and play in the park. Verify with your StrongStart facilitator the park location of your StrongStart Centre.
