The Ontario government presented its new child care funding framework and formula for municipalities in December 2012. This will provide greater flexibility to allocate child care funding based on our local needs and helps to ensure that services continue to be available and accessible for the families who need them.
While there is limited new funding at this time, this change will allow for a "Made in Toronto" model that is more customized to meet local needs and will help to ensure that our child care system is stable in future years.
Licensed child care providers as well as experts in the field of early childhood education will be consulted in the coming months to inform the development of a future child care funding model. There will also be opportunities for families to provide their input.
Check this section regularly for information on how you can become involved in shaping of new child care model that Toronto families can depend on for years to come.
Children's Services East District Office is moving
In May 2013 the Children's Service East District Office will be moving from our current location at 1457 McCowan Rd. to 325 Milner Ave. The main intersection is Milner Avenue and Progress Avenue. All phone and fax numbers will remain the same.
Our new location will be co located and providing an integrated front counter service with Malvern Toronto Employment and Social Services. This will enhance our ability to improve our service delivery model. Both Divisions will share a front counter for streamlined access and improved customer service.
The Quality Assurance Unit has already moved to the same office space in the first phase of the East District Office move.
