Effective April 19, 2021, the Province of Ontario prohibits child care centres from providing service to kindergarten and school age children. During this time, Emergency child care is available for essential workers with school-aged children during the closure period.

The following TELCCS programs are affected and will not be operating their Kindergarten and School Age programs:

Our Programs

The City operates early learning and child care programs throughout Toronto for children birth to 12 years of age. We are committed to providing high quality, inclusive programs that support the health, well-being and learning of every child in our care.

TELCCS Waitlist Registration

We encourage families to register early because each Toronto Early Learning & Child Care program has a waitlist.  There are two different ways to register.

  1. If you need help with the cost of child care, apply through our Child Care Fee Subsidy application or call 311. This one application will put your name on both the Child Care Fee Subsidy waitlist and the waitlist for the Toronto Early Learning & Child Care (TELCCS) programs you choose.
  2. If you are able to pay the full cost of care for a TELCCS program, apply through our TELCCS waitlist registration.
