Re-Opening of Child Care

Regulations in the Child Care and Early Years Act require that all Licensed Child Care Centres offering childcare services during the COVID-19 outbreak practice good health and sanitary practices daily. Child Care Centres that have a purchase agreement with the Cochrane District Social Services Administration Board will be expected to comply with the CDSSAB COVID-19 Response Plan for Child Care Centres in the District of Cochrane. This response plan created in partnership with the Porcupine Health Unit may be adopted by the child care centre or as a minimum expectation.
