On April 12, 2021, the Province announced Toronto schools move to remote learning effective April 19. During this period:

  • child care programs for non-school aged children (i.e., children aged 0-4) will remain open for the duration of this time-limited public health action. This includes child care offered in licensed child care centres and in home-based settings;
  • during the period when elementary schools are operating virtually, licensed child care centres, authorized recreation and skill-building providers and district school boards will be prohibited from serving school-aged children;
  • home child care programs are permitted to provide child care to kindergarten and school-aged children;
  • before and after school programs are not permitted to operate during this period. These programs may resume operation when elementary schools return to in-person learning.

Emergency child care for kindergarten and school-aged children of eligible essential workers will be available during the provincially-mandated remote learning period. The service is available at no cost to eligible families who qualify as essential workers and who are not able to accommodate their school-aged child’s care at home. The safest option for families is to have children remain at home, if possible.

  1. Check the list of eligible essential workers to see whether you qualify for emergency child care services.
  2. See the list of approved emergency child providers and apply directly to the emergency child care provider of your choice. The emergency child care provider will determine your eligibility and will confirm whether you have a space for your child.
