Important Notice with regard Child Care and Early Years Act

The Ontario Ministry of Education has developed and passed new regulations (the Child Care and Early Years Act) that affect how child care will be offered in Ontario. Some of the regulations are already in effect, while others are still being adjusted and implemented.

This new legislation will affect CAG programming in that we are no longer able to offer summer camp programming for children under 4 years of age and as of September 1, 2017 we will no longer be able to offer our After School program to Junior and Senior Kindergarten students. We appreciate that this is going to impact our families but as it is legislated we have no option. Junior and Senior Kindergarten students will be accommodated at licensed day cares such as those offered at the schools.
