Early childhood educators and other child care professionals in licensed child care settings are getting a raise.

Ontario is providing a $1 per hour wage increase for eligible child care workers who qualify in the licensed child care sector, bringing the total wage increase up to $2 per hour, plus benefits. The province is also providing an additional $10 per day increase to home child care providers who qualify, bringing the total increase up to $20 per day. Both increases are effective January 2016.

“Ontario’s early childhood educators and child care workers are passionate, hard-working, and dedicated. We know they’re helping children get the best possible start in life, and giving parents valuable peace of mind. That’s why we want to retain these valued caregivers, and support stable, high quality licensed child care programs for our children,” said Liz Sandals, Minister of Education.
