The New Child Care and Early Years Act: What Providers and Parents Need to Know

Together, we have been working hard to ensure child care in Ontario reflects the realities of our modern world. Our overarching goal is to build a child care and early years system that better supports parents and gives children the best possible start in life. Extensive consultation with parents and early years partners was key to developing this modernization plan.

To support our ambitious goals, the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA) will come into effect on August 31, 2015. This legislation will replace the outdated Day Nurseries Act (DNA) and establish new rules governing child care in Ontario.

Many of the new provisions will strengthen compliance and health and safety in child care settings, and help parents make informed choices about their options. Many of the provisions that existed under the regulations under the Day Nurseries Act are unchanged and will be carried forward under the CCEYA.

Potential ETFO Strike - YMCA of Sudbury Day Camps

Ontario elementary school teachers will launch some form of strike action on Monday, May the 10th. This may mean that Sudbury area elementary schools are affected and schools subsequently closed. The details of what the strike will look like have not been released as of yet. Because of this, the YMCA of Sudbury Durham street will be offering Day Camps for the duration of the strike should it happen. These Day Camps will run from 7:30am – 6:00pm Monday to Friday and accept day-of registrations, advanced registration is not required. Unlike our regular Day Camps, payment will only be required on the day of registration due to the nature of the strike.
