Surveys to Support Review of Child Care/Early Years Act


The Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 (CCEYA) came into effect on August 31, 2015. The CCEYA requires the Minister of Education to conduct a statutory review of the Act within five years of its coming into force.

To support the review, a consultation is occurring this summer with families and child care partners to gather input on ways to enhance the early years and child care system.

The ministry is launching two surveys online – one for families and one for child care sector partners – to support the review of the CCEYA and to guide future child care planning for the province. The survey results will help to improve the system to better meet the needs of families and child care providers.

The surveys are available on this website, https://www.ontario.ca/page/consultation-strengthening-early-years-and-child-care-ontario, from July 7 - 21, 2020 and take approximately 15 - 20 minutes to complete. The surveys include a number of closed- and open-ended questions on various topics related to early years and child care.

Submissions are also welcome from individuals and organizations, and can be sent to cceya_consultation@ontario.ca by July 31, 2020.

Following the public consultation period, the ministry will release a public report with respect to the review once the feedback has been reviewed and analyzed.
