8 more city-run child care centres reopen Tuesday

BT Toronto | posted Tuesday, Aug 4th, 2020

More city-run child care centres will be back up and running today in Toronto, nearly two months after the province gave their reopening the green light.

The reopening of eight more buildings means that close to half of all centres are now operational, and the city expects all 47 to be ready by the end of September.

“A phased approach to reopening child care programs is the right move,” Mayor John Tory said in a release.

“It will allow operators the time to make their spaces safe for children, their families as well as for child care operators and their staff. As we continue to reopen child care centres, we must do everything possible to protect our children so that we can provide safe child care options to parents who are eager to get back to work.”

Families are being advised to contact their child care providers directly to find out the reopening status in their neighbourhood.
