Regulation Number(s):
O. Reg. 262
Bill or Act:
Day Nurseries Act
Summary of Proposal:
The Government of Ontario is committed to working with partners to modernize Ontario's child care system.

The Ministry of Education assumed full responsibility for child care on January 1, 2012. The ministry is committed to leveraging the experience and insight of our partners and families as we redefine our system of early learning and child care service and program delivery.

To begin a conversation regarding child care modernization, the government is releasing the attached discussion paper, Modernizing Child Care in Ontario: Sharing Conversations, Strengthening Partnerships, Working Together. The paper outlines the government's long-term vision for child care and seeks feedback on targeted medium-term objectives that will help us achieve that vision over the next three years.

All interested parties including early learning, education, child care sector partners, parents / guardians, and other stakeholders are encouraged to provide input to the ministry. Feedback can be provided in one of three ways:
