Information About $10 Childcare in Ontario (Canada-Wide Early Learning & Child Care Program)

This section will be updated regularly when new information is available.

Exciting news!! We are proud to announce that Day Care Connection is part of the new Canada-wide Early Learning and Childcare (CWELCC) program that will see substantial fee reductions for families.

We have homecare spaces available and we are also looking for home-caregivers/childcare providers.

Parents and Families:

Families saw an average reduction in fees of 25% starting in April 2022, and a further reduction (for a total of about 50%) by the end of 2022. Parents/guardians had rebates that were retroactive to April 1st, 2022. The Province will continue working towards an average of $10 per a day by late 2025.

Rest assured that Day Care Connection is committed to offering top-quality licensed childcare and making your and your children’s experiences as enriching as possible.

Partnering with New Home Child Care Providers and Caregivers:

We are looking for new childcare providers to help us fulfill our goals of providing this care for as many families as we can. If you are a home childcare provider who is interested in working with a supportive licensed home child care agency, please contact us to discuss working alongside each-other.

Day Care Connection has been offering not-for-profit childcare since 1976 and makes sure providers are provided the best possible rate. Many of our providers received significant assistance that may not have been available to non-licensed providers.

If you are a childcare provider that is interested in discussing the new $10 a day program and how we may be able to work together, please don’t hesitate to contact us at or 416.698.0750.
