TDSB to offer “extended-day program” staffed by full-time early-childhood educators employed by the board. – Toronto Star

The TDSB has been relying on school-based child care and recreation programs to provide after-hours care for children from kindergarten to Grade 6.

But a staff report, to be debated by a board committee Wednesday, says many child-care programs are unable to meet demand because they don’t have enough space and can’t find enough early-childhood educators willing to work split shifts. About 23 per cent of schools offer no before- and after-school care, the report adds.
