Expression of Interest to Operate Early Years Programs
Friday, August 24 – Is the deadline for operators to submit their Expression of Interest to establish and operate one of the new EarlyON Child and Family Centres and the LGBTQ2S mobile program.
The City undertakes an Expression of Interest (EOI) process to select an operator for a newly built or renovated child care centre or an EarlyON Child and Family Centre. We look for not-for-profit organizations who are committed to providing accessible, equitable, high quality services that welcome all families and are responsive to local community needs.

There is currently an Expression of Interest to operate one of three new EarlyON Child and Family Centres. One will be a LGBTQ2S mobile program, the other two will be located in northwest and northeast Toronto.
The Expression of Interest process consists of three stages.
Stage 1: Organizations must submit their complete EOI packages by the deadline
Stage 2: The City will evaluate the submitted EOI package for completeness and will be scored on their submission.
Stage 3: Organizations that are successful in Stage 2 will be invited to a Review Panel Interview.
Transparency, Fairness, Accessibility, Equity, High-Quality
The City is committed to a transparent and fair EOI process.
All EOI submissions will be evaluated based on an organization’s proven ability to provide accessible, equitable and high-quality services to Toronto families and children.
