Toronto Children’s Services promotes access to high quality early learning and child care services and works closely with the community to develop a coordinated system that meets the diverse needs of Toronto families and children.

The division:

  • Helps Toronto’s families to find and access licensed child care, before and after school care and EarlyON Child and Family Centres. The division also helps families with the cost of licensed child care and provides support for children with extra support needs who are enrolled in licensed child care
  • Offers funding, resources and professional development to help agencies deliver programs that are high quality, accessible and inclusive
  • Helps communities plan and develop services tailored to their unique needs by providing data on child & family outcomes, demographics and services specific to their community.

The division’s vision is that all families in Toronto benefit from a range of services that promote healthy child development and family well-being.
