Ontario Expands Access to Licensed Childcare in Schools
Date: September 28, 2017
The Ontario government has announced that effective September 1, 2017, all publicly funded elementary schools serving students up to Grade 6 are required to provide before- and after-school programs for children aged 4-12 where there is a sufficient demand.
The programs may be operated by a school board through a licensed childcare provider for children ages 4-12. For after-school activities geared to children ages 6-12, they may be provided by an authorized recreational and skill-building program.
