Ontario is creating approximately 4,000 new child care spaces for Ontario families as a result of a significant new investment announced in the 2015 Ontario Budget.
Over the next three years, $120 million in new funding will be dedicated to building safe, high quality, licensed child care spaces in schools across the province where there is significant demand. Schools boards in Ontario can apply now to the Ministry of Education for funding.
“This is an important investment for Markham-Unionville families and another milestone in modernizing Ontario’s child care and early years system. I am proud that our government recognizes that local schools are community hubs that can help meet the need for safe and reliable child care spaces and bring peace of mind to parents.”
— Michael Chan, M.P.P., Markham-Unionville
This investment is another step towards a modernized child care and early years system that will enhance programs and supports for children in Ontario under age 12.
Continuing to improve education — from early years through to postsecondary education — is part of the government’s four-part plan to build Ontario up. The plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan.
“Our government is proud to invest in families by supporting a modernized child care and early years system with more capacity to care for our youngest learners. Adding approximately 4,000 child care spaces in local schools is an important step toward building Ontario up.”
— Liz Sandals, Minister of Education
