An introduction and a welcome message from Diane Daley, CEO

I am delighted to introduce myself as the incoming CEO of Family Day. I stepped into my new role on July 1, 2019, succeeding Joan Arruda who retired in June. I have been a senior leader at Family Day for the past 11 years, and I am truly excited about this new opportunity.

I would like to welcome new and returning families to our programs. You have made a great choice in Family Day, an agency that has been serving children and families for 168 years. Our agency has evolved and changed over time, and today we provide a range of high-quality early learning programs across the GTA, including home child care, centrebased child care, EarlyON Child and Family Centres, and a Homework Plus program funded by the United Way.

It is our pleasure to serve you and meet your specific need for child care, early learning and family support programming. As leaders in the sector we are invested in ensuring children and their families have a positive experience, and have created many tools to support you as you engage in your child’s learning. We want to ensure we have open lines of communication so you can share your perspectives and get involved in ways that work best for you. I hope you will take the time to read our Parent Handbook and Program Statement, both of which are available at We also encourage you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, where we share daily highlights of the wonderful learning that takes place in our programs.

I am truly excited about my new role at Family Day, and I look forward to the journey we will share together.

Diane Daley, CEO
