Local Daycare at a Glance

17 July 2015

Children are such an important part of our community, and so is quality childcare service. As a mother myself, I know how hard it can be to find the right daycare for your child. Luckily, the neighbourhoods around St. Clair West offer plenty of options for children of all ages, from infancy through elementary school. I’ve compiled a list of all the licensed daycares in our area. (Private daycares exist as well, but they aren’t regulated or inspected by the City, so I haven’t included them.)

To learn more about daycare licensing and inspections, or to see maps of daycares by ward, visit the City of Toronto Children's Services website. For more information and resources for parents, contact Mothercraft (416-483-0511) or our local Parenting and Family Literacy Centre (416-394-2388).
