Update March 16, 2020 – The deadline for submitting an Expression of Interest has been postponed and scheduled webinars and interviews have been cancelled.

Additional EarlyON Program Funding for Ward 14

In June 2019, an EarlyON Centre located at Blake Street Public School was closed due to space constraints. To maintain service in the ward, the City is inviting applications for additional funding from EarlyON Child and Family Centre service providers currently operating EarlyON Centres in Ward 14 (Toronto-Danforth).

There is $60,000 in operating funding available annually. The expectation from service providers is to establish a new EarlyON Centre at St. David’s Anglican Church (49 Donlands Avenue). The rent for this location has been estimated at $1,200 per month but would have to be negotiated with the Church.

The Expression of Interest application will require organizations to detail how they plan to spend the $60,000 in additional operating funding, including information on additional service hours to be offered, program frequency, proposed staffing and a program model that meets the unique needs of the community.

Additional EarlyON Program Funding for Ward 10

In June 2019, an EarlyON Centre located at Niagara Street Public School was closed due to space constraints. To maintain service in the ward, the City is inviting applications for additional funding from current EarlyON Child and Family Centre service providers in or within very close proximity to Ward 10-Spadina-Fort York.

There is $60,000 in operating funding available annually. The expectation from service providers is to either expand services at existing locations or to secure a new service location in the Liberty Village neighbourhood, with the priority being a Liberty Village site.

The Expression of Interest application will require organizations to detail how they plan to spend the $60,000 in additional operating funding, including information on additional service hours to be offered, location(s), program frequency, and proposed staffing.
