On January 12, 2021, the Province announced that it would extend the remote learning period in the City of Toronto until February 9, 2021 to help mitigate further community spread of the COVID-19 virus.

During this period:

  • child care programs for infants, toddlers and preschoolers will operate as usual
  • there will be no regular child care programs for kindergarten and school-aged children operating in child care centres
  • home child care programs are permitted to provide child care to kindergarten and school-aged children
  • child care providers not operating during this period are prohibited from charging fees during this time and parents will not lose their child care space(s).

Emergency child care for kindergarten and school-aged children of eligible essential workers will be available during the provincially-mandated remote learning period of January 4 to February 9, 2021. The service is free and funded by the Province of Ontario.

Emergency child care services are reserved exclusively for children of essential service workers identified in the Province’s List of Workers Eligible for Emergency Child Care , who have no other alternatives and has recently been expanded to include additional workers. The safest option for families is to have children remain at home, if possible.

Eligible families may apply directly with any of these Provincially-approved child care providers. If you are eligible and in need of emergency child care, please contact the child care provider directly.
