Ontario plan puts more than 2,000 Toronto daycare spots at risk
from Toronto Star
Toronto could lose at least 2,184 infant and toddler child-care spaces — and fees would skyrocket — under proposed provincial child-care changes aimed at addressing 12-month maternity leaves and full-day kindergarten, according to a city report. A minimum of 325 infant spaces and 1,859 toddler spots would disappear while costs would soar by almost $21 million under the plan to change child-care age groupings, group sizes and staff-child ratios, says the report soon to be discussed by the city's community development committee.
