Update on Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care Program

June 23rd, 2022

Dear Families and Staff of Orde Day Care and Orde Satellite;

On June 22, 2022, the Treasurer, of Orde Day Care and myself participated in an information session presented by Toronto Children Services, regarding the Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care program. The information that was provided through this session has been shared with our Board of Directors to allow them to make an informed decision as to whether Orde Day Care Centre will opt into the program for 2022.

If the decision is made to opt in, Orde Day Care and Orde Satellite will be required to apply to Toronto Children Services for approval. Once the approval is granted, the city would begin to provide funding to reimburse fees. Upon receipt of this funding the centre would then begin to offer refunds to parents retroactive to April 1, 2022 for children who are under the age of 6 as of June 30, 2022.

We would like to thank you for your continued patience and loyalty to Orde Day Care as we navigate through this new program and it nuances. Once a decision is made by the Board of Directors to opt in or not we will communicate this the families and staff.

Anna Gionet R.E.C.E

Executive Director, Orde Day Care Centre
