7,600 daycare spaces on the line: Ont. child care advocate
« on: February 04, 2010, 02:33:19 PM »
Daycare advocates say they are worried Ontario's cash-strapped government won't cover a $63.5-million gap in daycare funding in this spring's budget.


The Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care says 7,600 spaces for low-income families could disappear across the province this June, along with 1,800 childcare jobs.


The federal government gave the province a one-time lump sum in 2006 for daycare subsidies, which the province spread out over four years. That money will run out in June.
