It’s a historic time for children and families. The Ontario government has signed on to the National Child Care Plan.
What does this mean for you and your family?
- Improved affordability
- Improved access to licensed child care
- Sustainability of high-quality care
- Further investment in creating inclusive licensed child care spaces for children and families to play and learn
The National Child Care Plan will:
- Reduce child care fees for children ages 5 and younger in licensed programs that are accessed all-year-round (including licensed day camp programs)
- Unfold in a phased approach over the next 5 years with benefits starting in 2022
- Increase access to licensed child care spaces (in centres and in homes) in our neighbourhoods
- Strengthen quality early learning and child care programs and opportunities for children and families across the licensed, non-profit sector
- Support Early Childhood Educators to do their best work
- Reinforce our commitment to create inclusive spaces for every child and family to belong
When will the changes take place?
Today’s Family will continue to communicate details with our families as we learn more.
