Child Care is important. My family has run licensed daycares for more than 30 yrs. Of course child care matters.
Mayor Chris Friel City of Brantford

In Hamilton, we're striving to make our City the Best Place to Raise a Child, but without access to child care services, many parents and kids will not be able escape the cycle of poverty. Affordable, accessible child care is an investment in our community's future.
Tom Cooper Director, Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction

I wish for a Hamilton that commits to making all the city's children its top priority: no more hungry kids; licensed and high-quality day care for all children and families who need it; safe homes and neighbourhoods; more encouragement and better support to make sure kids graduate from high school and make it to university or college.

The expectation of success shouldn't just be for those who are lucky enough to be able afford it or for those who somehow beat the odds.

I wish for a city that makes sure its children, its future adult citizens, achieve their full potential.

Early Learning and Child Care is more than care, its development and its investment. Development occurs socially, mentally, and emotionally when the brain is its most 'plastic' stage in the early years. It is an investment into a child's emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Early learning and child care is an investment into the future of our economy as we develop creative, skilled and resilient people.
Mark Chamberlain community champion
Affordable, high quality child care is essential for Toronto's families and for Toronto's future — we have thousands of families waiting, just to get into this system — don't let them down!
Jane M. Toronto, Ontario
Child care matters to me because it is good for kids, good for families, and good for communities.

It helps lift families out of poverty, and gives kids the great start in life that they have the right to.
Andrea C. Ontario
Child care matters to me because it is an integral part of the continuum of family support services that children and families need.
