Update: Childcare Services in Toronto & Full Day Kindergarten

Since 1997, Toronto Children’s Services has been the service system manager, responsible for managing and delivering local services for Toronto’s children and families.
All day-kindergarten is a wise investment for our education system. This means fewer older children will need to go to child care centres. Providing space for younger children requires money to renovate facilities and revised services to meet the needs of younger children.  If the childcare centres do not get that money, they may have to close. City staff estimated that as many as 43% of the City’s child care centres are at risk due to this.

Why Full Day Kindergarten Impacts Child Care:

  • 4 and 5s enroll in FDK, creating vacancies in preschool programs
  • Vacancies result in revenue loss
  • Potential to fill preschool vacancies (2½ to Kindergarten entry) are limited when relying on families with a fee subsidy
  • Parent fees for younger children increase (loss of cross-subsidization)
  • Risk to operators of remaining financially viable

For more information, please review this City report

Through a series of public meetings, Councillors Fragedakis and Fletcher, School Trustee Cathy Dandy and MPP Peter Tabuns have been working with parents and child care providers to address these problems in Toronto-Danforth.

Thanks to pressure from child care advocates, the 2012 provincial budget includes some money to address this. While this new money falls short of the amounts still needed for child care, it will keep many programs from closing.
