NEW WEBSITE: Child Care Matters To Me

High quality, safe and affordable child care matters to the future of Ontario.

The Ontario government's new Full-Day Learning program is a great first step but it only focuses on 4 and 5-year-olds. It doesn't address the early learning and care needs of younger children and their families.

Without an immediate funding fix, licensed child care centres in every community across Ontario will close, leaving fewer child care spaces for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers - and leaving families with no options. Fewer licensed child care and home care spaces means longer waiting lists, up to 30% increase in fees, parents forced to give up their jobs and a threat to the success of and investment in full-day learning.

Tell your MPP that child care matters to you - before March 31st!
