Today, Mayor Olivia Chow was joined by Councillor James Pasternak (York Centre) and Trevor McAlmont, CEO of Macaulay Centres for Children to officially open a new child care centre in North York.

The Macaulay Centres for Children – Tippett Child Care Centre (the Centre) is located at 38 Monte Kwinter Crt., on the ground floor of a newly-built 14-storey residential condominium building. The new Centre, serves 49 children and families, from infant to age four, and occupies 9,061 square feet of indoor and outdoor space.

The Centre includes large windows in playrooms to provide natural light, a naturalized-themed playground, sand and water play areas and a tricycle track.

This new location provides child care at a reduced fee for all families through the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) funding program and eligible families may also access a fee subsidy through the City of Toronto.

The City is the site owner, and the Macaulay Centres for Children leases the space and operates the child care centre.

Macaulay Centres for Children is a non-profit, community-based, multi-service and multi-site organization with a 90-year history of providing inclusive, quality programs and services for children and families in the northwest region of Toronto.

Toronto’s licensed child care system has more than 1,000 licensed child care centres and 26 home child care agencies providing early learning and care for children up to 12 years of age. The City supports high-quality programs that promote healthy outcomes for all children.

More information about licensed child care in Toronto, as well as the CWELCC program, is available on the City’s website:
