Winter 2013

In January, the province announced a new Ontario Early Years Policy Framework in response to feedback from child care partners and families. The framework sets out a new vision and plan of action to bring together a range of resources related to Early Years and Family Supports under the responsibility of the Ministry of Education, Early Learning Division over the next few years. The goal of these policies and this funding is to ensure that the child care system is stable and provides services for younger and older children in school locations. The new vision means that schools will provide an easily accessible, single point of entry for other early years or family support services that families may need. – Family Day CEO
