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 This legislation will replace the outdated Day Nurseries Act (DNA) and establish new rules governing child care in Ontario.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.
