With the implementation of the Province's Full-Day Kindergarten program, it has become apparent that accessibility and affordability of child care in Toronto is at risk.

By September 2012, almost 7,000 children will leave the child care system to start full-day kindergarten. As these children leave, child care operators will experience increased financial and operational pressures that may force them to close their doors.

The City of Toronto is working with child care operators and the Government of Ontario to find solutions. A new child care funding formula, a transition plan and capital funding are required to ensure the continued accessibility and affordability of child care in Toronto.
