Emergency Child Care

Today the government announced that it will provide emergency child care for school-aged children, free of charge, starting Monday, April 19, 2021. This follows the province’s decision to close all elementary and secondary schools, publicly-funded and private, for in-person learning following the April Break.

Due to the restrictions in place, to support the parents of school-aged children who may not be able to support their child’s learning or care at home, the Ministry of Education will be implementing a targeted emergency child care program for school-aged children who are enrolled in school, at no cost to eligible parents, during the period when schools are operating remotely.

Eligibility

Those eligible for Emergency Child Care (ECC) include health care and other frontline workers whose children are currently enrolled in school. Please see the revised list of eligible workers provided by the Province.
 
For clarity, there may be some children who despite being school-aged (i.e., Junior/Senior Kindergarten) are not registered in school and are currently enrolled in licensed child care. Thus, Junior/Senior Kindergarten-aged children who are not registered in school but are instead registered in licensed centres as of April 12, 2021, may continue to attend the centres throughout the duration of these time-limited public health actions and would not be considered as eligible for Emergency Child Care.

Health and safety measures

Strict health and safety measures required by the Ministry of Education, in consultation with the Ministry of Labour Training and Skills Development, the Ministry of Health and Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, include but are not limited to the following practices:

  • Daily screening of everyone before entering the premises and keeping attendance records for contact tracing;
  • Practicing the proper use of masks and eye protection, proper hand hygiene and physical distancing; and
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of toys, equipment, and the premises.

 

Registration

Please contact the providers listed below to register, as well as to inquire about eligibility requirements for emergency child care.
