Licensed Child Care

Licensed child care is government-regulated early learning and care. At the TDSB, community child care centres are housed at a number of our schools.

The centres offer care for children ranging in age from infancy to 12 years old. Children at the centres are grouped together based on age. 

An important part of every licensed child care program is the staff team. This team includes early childhood professionals who work in partnership with the City and the community in their effort to deliver a quality early learning and care program.

Child care subsidies are supported through the City of Toronto.
To apply, visit the Toronto Children’s Service website or phone 311.

Early Years (0-3.8)


Early years programming is designed to help children develop their social and communication skills, provide a variety of play and learning activities to enhance development and prepare them for school.

Before- and After-School Programs (3.8-12)


Before- and After-School programs designed for children age 3.8 to 12 are generally offered before and after school. Many of these programs also offer a full-day program on professional development days, March break and during the summer months.
