A Section 22 order under the Health Protection and Promotion Act, requires all elementary and secondary school students to transition to online/remote learning starting April 7. During this time, child care centres and licensed home child care are prohibited from providing service to kindergarten and school aged children. Emergency child care is available for essential workers with school-aged children during the closure period.

What to Expect at a Child Care Program

Licensed child care programs look a bit different then they did back in March 2020.  To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, programs are following new procedures as directed by the Province and Toronto Public Health. Watch our videos to get a sense of what to expect.

Toronto’s licensed child care system has over 1,000 centres and 19 home child care agencies providing early learning and care for children up to 12 years of age. The City supports quality programs which promote healthy outcomes for all children.
