Every 5 years the Ministry of Education requires Peel Region to develop a new system-wide service plan for early years and child care services in our region. This plan outlines priorities for continuous growth while meeting the changing needs of children and families. Learn about our 2019 to 2025 road map for early years and child care.


To shape the new early years and child care plan for 2025-2030, we need to hear from Peel’s diverse families. Your feedback along with existing data will help us learn what families think about:

  • Quality, inclusion, and belonging in Peel's underserved geographic regions and under-represented populations. These include Indigenous, Black, South Asian, other racialized, rural, 2SLGBTQ+ and low-income families.
  • Existing barriers to accessing early learning and child care services.
  • Affordability and the impact of the new child care plan to deliver $10-a-day child care.
  • The impact of accessing child care subsidies to help pay for licensed child care.
  • The changing needs and expectations for before and after school programs.
  • Licensed home child care.
  • Peel Inclusion Resource Services (PIRS) and special needs resources.
  • The need for flexible child care options such as nights or weekends.
