Ontario cracks down on dangerous, unregulated day cares
from The Globe and Mail
In an effort to crack down on dangerous and unregulated home day cares, Ontario will introduce legislation that gives inspectors new powers to close unsafe locations "on the spot" and give hefty fines to caregivers who break the rules. The proposed changes will also create an incentive for unregulated day cares to become licensed, create new space in existing licensed home-based care by allowing caregivers who meet standards to watch an additional child, and require school boards to provide before and after school programs for students between the ages of six and 12, where there is "sufficient" demand.
