Recently, it has come to my attention that the Ministry of Education of Ontario (MOE) is planning to decrease the current incentives in place for independent care givers.
Additionally, licensed agencies are lobbying with the MOE to restrict the number of children that independent care givers are allowed to care for. If these propositions are implemented, they are not only jeopardizing my business, but also present a setback to independent home day care.
I am a dedicated, educated caregiver who seeks out training and resources in the community. As you may know, over 80% of Ontario’s children needing child care spend their time in an independent caregiver’s home.
I need your help to lobby against the licensed sector's suggestion to the Ministry of Education for restricting the number of children we are allowed to care from 5 to 4 and the MOE's plan to decrease the incentives for independent care givers.
Caregivers are the front line workers who lay the foundation of the future generation. We should instead be encouraged to work more, and with improved incentives, rather than restricted and discouraged. I look forward to your support.
We the Independent Private Home Daycare Providers are asking you to help us stop these changes that the Ministry of Education is trying to implement.
