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.
