Early Years & Child Care Services
Helping children succeed through active exploration, inquiry and play
The Early Years & Child Care Services (EYCCS) support the on-going development and life-long foundation of learning, health, and well-being. Our services offer children the supports they need to be actively immersed in an environment that promotes belonging, well-being, engagement, and expression. EYCCS includes Early Learning Centres, an EarlyON Child and Family Centre, and Every Child Belongs Consultation Services.
Licensed Child Care Centres
CDI operates four Early Learning Centres in diverse communities across Toronto. Our centres are enrolled in the Canada Wide Early Learning & Child Care (CWELCC) system which commits to lowering child care fees for families and increasing access to high quality child care programs. Each Early Learning Centre has a service agreement with Toronto Children’s Services to provide subsidized child-care spaces for families who may need assistance.
CDI operates an EarlyON Child and Family Centre (CFC), Parkdale-High Park EarlyON Child and Family Centre. All services are free of charge.
Child Care Consultation Services
Child Care Consultation services provide support for child care centres caring for children under the age of 12 with extra support needs in licensed child care programs.
